Shrimp Etoufee and More for Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is fast approaching and we always make some type of Cajun food, which we love.  Scott's favorite Cajun dish is Shrimp Etoufee, which he always orders anytime he is near a Cajun restaurant. Shrimp Etoufee is shrimp and vegetables, "smothered in a roux", sort of like a stew, with Cajun or Creole spices, served over white rice. Etoufee can also be made with crawfish, but aren't readily available in our area. Of course, Scott finally made Shrimp Etoufee recently, and modified Emeril LaGasse's recipe, which is found here.   You can adjust the level of spices, depending on your personal preferences. One bite of this dish,and you will think that you are in New Orleans. If you don't like seafood, you can substitute chicken. We cut the recipe in half, and used vegetable stock in place of the shrimp stock.  We did have Emeril's Essence in our pantry.

Here are some more great Cajun recipes for Mardi Gras!  

Of course you can't forget a Hurricane!

And for dessert, here is the King Cake!

Laissez Les Bontemps Rouler, Let. the Good Times Roll! Enjoy!
