Being from the New Orleans area, I find the basic part of this recipe to be good. I don't use as much oil and a little more butter, and I add lots of cajun seasoning and a good bit of fresh garlic when I am sauting the vegs. I also double the recipe, and sometimes add much more of everything than suggested and it all cooks down fine. Many people say that tomatoes or the paste don't belong in the etouffe (it is more of a creole dish with the red sauce), but I always get phenomenal reviews when I make it. Then again, that's what cajun dishes are all about--just cooking all your stuff down with spice, and ya get what ya get!
