Dipping Down The Bayou...
Hello Artsy Friends Stopping In Today..
How did everyone do with "Irene" swaying by this past weekend??
I pray you are all well & survived safely. We had a huge tree fall
next door in our neighbors yard and some power outage, but that
was the most of it.. Whew!! Made for a fun snuggle
in movie day on the flip side!!
With all the weather
"Bliss" I decided to make some comfort
food for dinner tonight. I've been craving something Cajun or
Louisiana inspired lately and really wanted to try making etouffee,
SO I DID!!! The house smells SOO yummy & this dish
was a huge HIT within the house.. Hope you enjoy my
really simple recipe I'm sharing this evening.. Toodles..
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir
in flour, and stir constantly until the mixture turns 'peanut butter brown ordarker, at least 15 or 20 minutes. I use a large fork with the flat side
to the bottom of the pan in a side to side motion.
It is very important to stir this constantly. If by chance
the roux burns, discard and start over.
bell pepper to the skillet, and saute for about
5minutes to soften. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and
fish stock, and season with the seafood seasoning.
pepper (if using), I added some habanero's to mine for more heat
then hot sauce had to offer (I'm not a big fan of hot sauce
as a form of "spice or heat to food")
Stir & add the crab legs and shrimp.
Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque.
Cool for a few minutes & serve!!
ALL DONE & READY FOR CHOP!!
YUM YUM YUM!!
I AM WARM & FUZZY ALL OVER!!!
Totally LOVED My Dish!!
Hope you get to try this awesome and simple
recipe within your home sometime.. Please be sure
to share your thoughts if you get to.
Thanks SO very much for stopping in today!!
I've had requests to share our Disney trip & will be
soon, fun post in the works.. Hold on tight!! TY
