Shrimp Etouffe'/Gumbo

I tried another recipe from Tasty Kitchen and it was awesome!! I started off making the "Shrimp Etouffe' Easy and Delicious" recipe and then started adding leftovers.

I had shrimp in the freezer and searched the easy recipes (by rating) on TK. The 10 minute cook time and 15 minute prep really caught my eye. I didn't like that there wasn't a picture, but I went out on a limb and tried it. It seemed easy enough and with a 6 week old baby girl, I need easy and fast.

I steamed some brown rice in our rice cooker. I LOVE our rice cooker.

Anyway, I started the rice and began preparing the recipe.

I realized I still had frozen okra from the garden in the freezer - so I added a bag of it and cooked it for about 8-10 minutes.


After adding the shrimp, I remembered we had an ear of grilled cajun corn leftover - so I quickly cut off the kernels and added those.

Then it was time to add the sauces.

Stir it all up, serve on rice, and voila, it's ready to eat!

  1. I found your blog because I follow your sisters, but I am now obsessed with your blog too! I am from south Louisiana and I can send you a real gumbo recipe and a real shrimp etouffee recipe. Send me your email and I can hook you up with my mom's recipe for both.

    My first question for you is would you prefer a recipe for either:
    seafood gumbo
    or
    chicken and sausage gumbo
