    Here are 3 recipes for etouffee. I like #2. I just season to taste. Add some either red or green bell pepper or both.
    The cajun trinity is onion, bell pepper, and green onions. ;)

    Don't Burn The Roux!!!! :D
    Ya gotta keep stiring it (the roux). If it burns throw it away and start over. A burnt roux will ruin an etouffee, it will taste like c*rp.
    Also a true etouffee is pretty thick, it ain't runny.

    Good luck.

    Don't burn the roux :D

    Words to live by when preparing any of the 5 "mother" souces and their countless direvetives. What a wonderful invention, the roux. "Equal parts of fat and flour by weight" Add the flower in measured amounts at regualr intervals. AGAIN....Dont' burn that roux!!!
