Quick and Easy Shrimp Étouffée





Étouffée is a spicy gravy that consists of sauteed shrimp and vegetables that is traditionally served over rice.  This Quick and Easy Shrimp Étouffée is my version of the New Orleans classic.  The inspiration for this dish came from The Warehouse in Alexandria, Virginia.  I had a dish of fried catfish smothered in shrimp and crawfish étouffée.  The fish was fried perfectly, but the étouffée was a little bland for my tastes.  My version of shrimp étouffée is a little spicier and has more of a deep seafood flavor.  Whether you smother some fried catfish, or serve over rice, this shrimp étouffée is quick, easy, and delicious.
