Shrimp Etouffee II

Shrimp Etouffee II


"This is a very easy shrimp etouffe recipe that utilizes your microwave! I usually add four dashes of hot pepper sauce to the dish, but bring the hot stuff to the table in case someone wants a zestier dinner! This recipe is one I learned while going to school in southern Louisiana - Geaux Tigers!"

Good and fast recipie. I followed the recipie to the tee. However, i found that it was kind of bland and noticed that there was something missing. I added a bay leaf and a couple dashes (1/2-...

This is a wonderful "one dish" meal. To lighten it up, I used 1/2 of the margarine and 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. We will definitely make this dish again.
