Meal Description

Étouffée, which comes from Cajun cuisine, literally means, “smothered,” as the dish is cooked down into a thick sauce.  There is no stock or liquid added to an Étouffée, rather vegetables are cooked in a covered pot.  An Étouffée is traditionally made from shellfish, but can be made with any protein, such as chicken, sausage, steak…and even rabbit, turtle, or squirrel…. just depends on what part of Louisiana you come from. 

To start this dish, we will be providing beurre d'écrevisses, or crayfish butter (which is optional), to flavor the Étouffée.  This will be followed by about 2 lbs. of onions, and a large amount of bell peppers and parsley.  These all will cook down into a thick sauce, while hot sauce will be added to taste (or none at all).  The Shrimp Étouffée is then served over rice. 

Cook de Cuisine’s Chairman was a child of the ‘70s.  There were two shows, one that proceeded and the other followed her beloved Brady Brunch (she thought Peter was a dreamboat!...and who didn't in his teenage years).  They were Bob Ross’ Joy of Painting and Justin Wilson’s Cookin’ Cajun.  Justin Wilson wore a distinctive “Cajun Tuxedo,” which were blue jeans worn with a blue jean shirt with distinctive red suspenders.  He was one of the first chef celebrities.  The Chairman fondly credits that programing schedule to her lifetime love of both landscape painting and Cajun food.
