So, after some time doing Mexican food...I decided to try another of my ancestral food types Cajun. So, today I am trying for a Shrimp Etouffee. Here is what it contains…
|Crushed Red Pepper|
|Cajun Seasoning||Cayenne, Garlic, Black Pepper, & Salt Mix|
|Citrus Garlic Herb|
|Green Onions||Green Onions|
|Mongo Mix||Red & Green Bell Peppers, Onions|
|Garlic Water||Garlic Water|
|Roasted Tomato Sauce||Roasted Tomato Sauce|
|Asian Chili Sauce||Asian Chili Sauce|
|Brown Rice||Brown Rice|
Dietary Fiber (g):8.43
Total Fat (g):2.8
Saturated Fat (g):0
So a couple of changes to the mix. First, brown rice instead of white (but then again I prefer brown rice anyway). Next, no bay leaves which we would normally use, and I thought about the Chili Garlic Sauce instead of the Roasted Tomato…perhaps next time. I also want to try for a Jambalaya using some sausage.
Here is what it looked like today…I was curious how spicy it might be…I only added a half a spoon of Asian Chili, after all Etouffee isn’t really all that spicy. Still, I would just have to see.
I handed by bowl over to the wonderful Grill Masters who took it and lovingly popped it down on the big steel wheel and cooked it up for me. Finally it was delivered to my waiting hands and I got a taste of today’s deliciousness…
My first taste let me know that the Asian Chili was not required as it had plenty of heat to it. Overall I would rate this one not a success as an attempt to make Etouffee…but it was good none the less. Heck at just over 400 calories…its hard to argue with how good it was.
Now, what should I do for tomorrow. Any suggestions?
Oh yeah. Go and vote for me! It only takes a minute
