Keepin’ It Big Easy With Shrimp Etouffee

It’s Fat TOOOOOZDEE! I will not be going out to get nuts tonight and fight for beads… so I thought how about bringing some of that Big Easy flavor to Connecticut with some Etouffee? When I was in New Orleans this was on the top of my traditional Creole must have foods and now it’s even easier to make with this All Recipe Shrimp Etouffee  from a lovely lady that gives us the okay to really keep it easy with use of  the microwave.
