Here is yet another rendition of Shrimp Etouffee that I have worked a little. I’ve had many compliments for this version.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup green onion tops, chopped fine (optional)
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 to 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne

Directions

Step 1

Step 3
