Easy Shrimp Étouffée
"This Cajun shrimp étouffée is a zesty combination of tender shrimp, The Holy Trinity of onions, celery, and bell peppers, and a rich gravy — all served on top of a bed of fluffy white rice. Best of all, it’s ready in less than an hour! Shrimp étouffée is a staple in Creole cuisine. Etouffee means “smothered” or “suffocated” in French, and when used in the context of food, refers to a method of cooking where seafood is smothered in vegetables and sauce. This spicy stew combines shrimp, crawfish, or crab with vegetables in a thick sauce or gravy. It’s typically served over white rice for an easy, flavorful supper. With just one bite, you’ll instantly be transported to The Big Easy!"
