    Sherrybeth's Note:

    Not too long ago someone requested a recipe for an etouffé like the one in a local restaurant. I called the chef up and asked him for the recipe and by golly, he gave it to me...without his one "secret" ingredient, so I decided to post it and I figured out the "secret".

      I loved this recipe. My suggestions are to make sure you use the freshest ingredients. Especially for the shrimp. Buy it fresh, the cheap frozen kind will turn out a little rubbery and ruin a great recipe. And don’t skimp on the rice, because it is what make the dish even more delisious. Also, I didn't add the cornstarch. Instead, I used a ladel and got the juice out and used it as a soup. My wife loved it and I thickened my etouffe.

      Very good! I left out the oil listed at the end, and mine was quite thick without using the cornstarch and water mixture. I also left out the chives. I used smoked sweet paprika and I loved the subtle sweetness that it along with the brown sugar gave. A definite keeper!
