Shrimp Etouffee II
4 stars - I came in with low expectations (based on the fact that the idea doesn't use a roux, uses condensed soup, and can be made in a microwave), and was pleasantly surprised.
I had an idea of what etouffee is supposed to look like, and this didn't match the picture I had in my head. I remember thinking "etouffee is supposed to be reddish brown...something is wrong here..."
That being said, I thought it was a very solid meal. The flavor was pretty true to the flavor profile I would expect. I was pleasantly surprised, and if you're pinched for time, this is definitely a good way to get your cajun fix.
I would be sure to put in a bay leaf, add some cajun spice, and some worcestershire sauce.
