    Parrot Head Mama's Note:

    I got this recipe from a Coast Guard wife whose husband worked with mine. She was from a tiny town in Louisiana and said sometimes her dad would work for shrimp when it was in season and her mom would make this with some homemade biscuits to go with it. I lost this recipe once, and tried some more elaborate recipes for the etoufee, but this ones is TONS better than any I've tried.

      I've made this twice now. The first time, I followed the directions as written and the second time I used only 1/2 stick of butter and added garlic powder and creole seasoning to taste. Yummy!

      Okay, this is my FULL review after I screwed up my last one. :)) This is spectacular recipe in flavor, and even more spectacular because it is SO easy. I have made this at least 20 times over the last couple of years! Some additions / changes I made: I add some Old Bay, but be careful with the amount because it can be too salty for some folks. I also add garlic powder, but you could also do crused garlic and saute it with the onions and peppers. , You I sometimes chop up one of those big links of andoille sausage and throw it in near the end. It is already cooked / smoked, so it just has be be heated through. Any of those types of links would work. To improve on the cals and the fat, I usually only use 6 TBS vs a whole stick of butter and add chicken broth out of the box until I get it to the consistency I want. I also use the Campbells soups that are 98% fat free. This recipe is also great because it can be made mild,to medium to hot using the different types of Rotel that come in Mild, Original, and Hot. Makes it easy to cater to specific audiences. Just give this a try. You can't go wrong. Even my Louisiana relatives asked for this recipe!

      I prepared this Sunday night to rave reviews. At first I had some nah sayers. But that soon went away after they saw me trying it! Needless to say this will be a common meal for us. I also added a touch of cayenne. Nice amount of heat!
