Shrimp Etouffe

 

New Orleans, Louisiana is my favorite vacation spot. Not just for the food but the pwople there are amazing and hospitable. Since i couldn’t get to NOLA, I brought it totmy house. I have been wanting to make shrimp etouffe for days now, but I did not have the time to take to make it. Finally I got to do it tonight. I realized that I did not have any green peppers. I did not let this stop me. Yes a true Trinity mirepox needs green pepper. But I had every other color bell pepper, and decided trip color bell peppers would be my Trinity mirepox. I added some garlic, scallions, and parsley. It worked. I dedicated time to this roux. 20 minutes of stirring seemed endless. Yet it was so worth the effort. This was delicious. I think I’ll be making more roux base dishes.
