What is "Etouffee"?
Etouffee is a Louisiana crawfish dish and or shrimp in a tasty tomato-based sauce, which can be varied with green bell peppers and aromatic vegetables. It is served with rice.
Properly speaking, the word ‘Etouffee’ would contain accents in French (from which language the word originates), so it would read ‘Étouffée’, but I haven’t found any recipes with this spelling. I have checked a couple of references, and the correct pronunciation follows French, even though the accents are no longer commonly a part of the spelling.
I haven’t tried it, but this looks like a great recipe for Etouffee.
