I used chicken broth instead of water, added a dash of cajun ..." See moreseasoning, worcestershire and a bit of parsley and tomato paste (to give it some color). When the whole thing was cooked I thickened it a bit more with some cornstarch in white wine (gave it a nice finished touch) I ended up with a traditional tasting true New Orleans style Shrimp toufee. Delicious!"
"I had some crawfish etoufee while in nawlins last year and it wss incredible. so I decide to try and make some at home. my wife refused to eat crawfish which led me to this recipe. I reduced the recip..." See moree to 6 servings. I used chicken broth in place of water, added a heaping tablespoon of tomato paste, cut back on the paprika a good bit. I was astonished! this tasted perfect. this will be a regular for me. Also as others have noted. when reduceing the recipe don't forget to cut back on the water/chicken broth and cook times will be greatly reduced as well."
"Cut the recipe to 4 servings, used 1/2c water, then added 1/2c of wine and a couple healthy shakes of creole seasoning toward the end. With 5 minutes left til done, I added 1lb of defrosted pre-cooke..." See mored shrimp. I don't know if my changes made the recipe better, but we sure did love it!"
