Shrimp Etouffee - WeekNight Meals III
  Re: (...)
If someone had never had a true crawfish (shrimp) etouffee, this was a great flavored dish. But, without the deep dark red roux, which this method can't achieve, it just did not have the wonderful flavor.

I'd give it a high 7, but be hesitant to call it an 'etouffee.'

Made the tomato rice to go along with it also, but used some of last year's tomatoes from the freezer and oven roasted them before combining with the rice. Tasty.
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

Great and very helpful comment, Jean. I HAVE had the real thing, and you are absolutely right about the importance of the roux.
If blueberry muffins have blueberries in them, what do vegan muffins have?

I've never had the real thing, but from what I know of these types of dishes, I'm surprised they would use that title without the roux. Good to know...thanks for the review, Jean.
Keep your mind wide open.

Thanks for your review on this Jean. I have had the real thing (in New Orleans) and there just isn't anything like it. But, for a quick meal, this might be a way to go.
