NEW ORLEANS-STYLE SEAFOOD ETOUFFEE with
Etoufee (Literally meaning “smothered”) is a popular Cajun and Creole dish popular in New Orleans and Louisiana for over a century. For this simple, yet flavorful stew, you’ll be using a combination of bell pepper, onion, and celery sometimes called the “trinity” made extremely popular by celebrity Chef Emeril!
There are many ways to make this classic dish – this version is my particular spin. Classically it is mainly made with Shrimp(s) as Forest Gumps best friend would say, but Bubba told us it can be made many many more ways…..
