Shrimp Etouffe

35 Min

A Louisiana friend shared her recipe with me, and I've come up with a few shortcuts. What a simple way to take a trip to America's fine food center.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 1 medium-sized green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) medium chunky salsa
  • 2 cans (4-1/4 ounces each) broken shrimp, undrained
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) chicken broth

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat; add the onion and green pepper and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, reduce the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.



Serve over hot cooked rice. For a true New Orleans taste, add one 14-1/2-ounce can of okra after sauteing the veggies.
