Thank you to Sandra B. for sharing this hand-written recipe with us! For those who don't know, an étouffée, which translates to "smothered" or "suffocated," is a stew-like dish common in both Cajun and Creole cuisine. It is made with seafood and vegetables and usually served over rice, but you can always try something different and serve it with potatoes, grits, pasta, or your choice of pairing instead.
Please let us know what you think in our comments section, and if you have your own dried shrimp or dried shrimp powder recipe that you would like to share with us, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Recipe"
