Seafood Étouffée Recipe

  • 3 pounds seafood, any combination
  • 1/4 cup cajun seasoning
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cans regular spaghetti sauce (16 ounce cans)
  • 1 can condensed golden mushroom soup
  • 2 cans Mexican tomatoes with chilies
  • 1 tablespoon Wocestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil
  • 2 bay leaves
**NOTE: This Étouffée is less time consuming to make than a traditional Louisiana dish as no roux is needed. It can be made using any combination of shellfish such as crawfish, shrimp, scallops, crab, clams or lobster.

In an 8 quart stock pot, boil shellfish with cajun seasoning. This may need to be done in series if some shellfish require more time than others.

Drain seafood, remove from stock pot and set aside.

Sauté chopped onion, bell pepper, celery, mushrooms, and garlic in butter until vegetables start becoming soft. Set vegetables aside. Do not overcook.

Add remaining ingredients to stock pot and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, add vegetables and simmer covered 20 minutes.

Add seafood and simmer uncovered 30 minutes.

Serve over rice.
