New Orleans is a fun place to visit, and I have done so several times in the past.

A favorite dish from this part of the United States is Crawfish Etouffee.

I want to share my version of Shrimp Etouffee recipe with you.

This dish is well-loved by my friends. I would say that is one of the much requested dishes for me to prepare for dinners here at home.

Today, I have shared my special recipe with you and the method of how I prepare it.

I hope that you will give it a try. And when you do, please let me know how it turns out!
