New Orleans Shrimp Etoufee

Elaine Bovender


My husband and I love Cajun themed meals and this is a favorite of ours that we ran across in our local newspaper a few years ago. It's a very spicy dish, but the seasoning could easily be adjusted for milder tastes. Just serve this over rice and add a nice pecan pie or peach cobbler for dessert and you have a great Cajun themed meal. Hope y'all enjoy!
