E is for Etouffe

etouffee (ay-too-fay) - The term literally means, "smothered." It is a cooking method of cooking something smothered in a blanket of chopped vegetables over a low flame in a tightly covered pan. Crawfish and shrimp etoufees are delicious New Orleans specialties.

My batch of Duck Etouffee is actually made with the carcass of a duck.  There's always plenty of meat left on the bones for one more recipe!  Isn't it pretty served in my Johnson Brothers Brookshire china?

I'm linking to Alphabet Thursday!

  1. That sure looks delicous and the plate is very appropriate.

  2. I learned a new word! (and how to pronounce it as well!)

  3. My son went on a mission to Louisiana for our church, and crawfish etouffee was his favorite dish!


  4. This word is just so fun to say!

  5. I am so jealous because Rod just took off for NOLA and I know he will get some terrific etouffee!!

  6. I am headed to New Orleans next week and for NOLA and am planning on getting me some etoufee!!

  9. What a delicious stop this week. My husband would ador this dish. I would eat rice on the lovely plate and be perfectly happy! I keep thinking I will like seafood when I get older...I think it's getting to be too late for it, after all!

    Excellent link!


  10. That looks great! It reminds me of the great food and music of New Orleans!
