Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 26 Clouds and Sun High 54)
On Fat Tuesday Bob had a great meal of shrimp and crawfish etouffee while Jo had grilled catfish.
As we mentioned earlier in a previous posting this etouffee was not what we expected when we had etouffee on Valentine's Day. Turns out it was the cajun version. The creole version is what is generally available.
Basically the creole version is thickened with a brown roux while the cajun version is not and the creole version has more vegetables like peppers, celery, carrots while the cajun version is mostly onion and spices. The creole version that Bob has had before has been spicier so Bob added Tabasco to his cajun etouffee.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
