New Orleans Shrimp Étouffé

Shrimp Etouffee

I was just laying on my couch after a day with two exams… I didn’t plan on cooking anything, then I saw one of my instagram followers posted a picture of Shrimp Étouffé.. It looked SOOOOO GOOD! It just reminded me that I couldn’t make this trip with my classmates to New Orleans this weekend for The Student National Medical Association Medical Education Conference.. and they’re going to eat all of this GREAT FOOD… Well this got me up and I found a recipe on Closet Cooking and I made some edits and it turned out really good! It is low key SPICY though! *Wipes sweat from forehead*. I made the white rice using my rice cooker, but you may use whatever rice you prefer. I admit this isn’t the best recipe if you’re busy during the week… but it is great for the weekend!

Season with pepper and a tiny pinch of salt. Using a large wooden spoon toss everything together until a creamy sauce has formed, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. If pot is not oven safe, transfer the pasta to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place the mozzarella slices (or shredded mozz) on top of the pasta.Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, then turn the broiler on and broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly.
  4. Remove from the oven and top with fresh basil ribbons. Allow to sit five minutes and then serve with fresh tom-tom tomatoes.
