Cheater Shrimp Etouffée


Before you scoff at the ingredients in this shortcut method, I say give it a try.

I feel certain you will be surprised.

It's a technique I learned many years ago from Sissy, a friend of mine from Starkville, Mississippi. I was at her house one day when I watched her whip this up while we stood in the kitchen chatting, and well, I was both fascinated and skeptical when I saw the secret ingredient.

One taste convinced me though, because this is just delicious. The cream of mushroom soup takes the place of what would normally be a roux and believe it or not, it really works! Many years later I learned local folks down here in the Deep South use this shortcut a lot. Who knew?

Give it a try sometime, I promise it is delicious, however, I do have the more traditional roux based etouffee to share with you as well, if you'd rather stick with a more authentic version. While a traditional etouffee doesn't really take that much time, even with making a roux - well, that is if you already have a homemade seafood stock made up - this shortcut will save you the step of not having to make that stock or a roux from scratch.

This is a small batch - two good adult servings, though you can stretch it out a bit with a big garden salad and some French bread. Here's how to make it.


Dig in!
