FOOD:
Seafood & 
Chicken Sausage
Étouffée
By Jack A. Atkinson

Seafood and Chicken Sausage Étouffée.  When I get the urge to cook, my “go-to-recipe” for a good meal at home or for company is étouffée (pronounced: ay-too-fay). I usually have the ingredients in the pantry, fridge and freezer. It’s a classic Cajun/Creole/South Louisiana treat. Étouffée simply means “smothered” in French, and in South Louisiana, étouffée is best known when combined with crawfish (ie: crawfish étouffée). I personally don’t like crawfish, but I love making the concoction with shrimp, any seafood or sausage.

When I want to be 'VERY FANCY" I add a light roux, but either way, this easy recipe is all it takes to make any food délicieusement étouffée, (deliciously smothered)!

Dice two medium white onions.
Dice one large green pepper.
Dice the center portion of a celery bunch
(I trim off the tops and the base - rinse and dice the rest.)
I sometimes add about 6 thinly-sliced baby carrots.
-Sauté all of the above in some olive oil,
until they are fully cooked and the onions/pepper just start to brown.
(This is where I would add the light coffee-colored roux, 
but it tastes great without it.)

Add some diced tomatoes (you can also use a good pre-made Marinara sauce). About 15 - 16 ozs.
Simmer for 15 minutes, on low heat, to sweeten the tomatoes.
Add to taste: salt + pepper + cajun seasoning for heat and add a few pats of butter (makes the sauce richer).
I cook any additional foods separately. (ie: 1 lb, Boiled Med to Lg shell on shrimp in water and Old Bay Seasoning) - take out with a strainer, when all pink on both sides, slightly under-cooked is ok (it continues to cook some). Cool, shell & cut into two or three chunks per shrimp, then add to the sauce.
The étouffée is now ready to be served over rice, or as is.
The longer the shrimp (or other additions) meld in the sauce, the better everything tastes.
This can be kept overnight and re-heated to serve to guests or family. (makes about 4 decent servings - recipe can be doubled.)
This dish only takes 30 to 45 minutes to prep and cook (an hour at the most, depending on what you cook to add in) BUT it's so much better than anything you can order in!
