We have a breakfast potluck at work once a month. We all take turns hosting it so no one has to bring anything more than once during the school year. I think it's a pretty fun thing even though I usually don't eat anything --most of the time the food is heavy on carbs and low on...well, everything else except maybe fat.
A couple months, ago, though, someone brought in a big ol' pot of Shrimp Etouffe, which is sort of like a Cajun shrimp stew. Sort of. It's more of a lunch or dinner thing than breakfast and I *think* it was meant to be eaten over grits or brioche or something but since those are both pretty carby, I tried it straight up...and OH MY HOLY HECK! It was AWESOME!
I've been meaning to try the recipe at home ever since then but I'm the only one who eats shrimp (unless it's fried...then Jess will eat it) so I've been putting it off. But today was one of the last overcast days I think we'll have before summer so I decided to go ahead and make it.
You have to use a big stock pot to fit all the ingredients and my version was sans flour for thickening (I used a tiny bit of guar gum powder instead but it was still a little more soupy than the one I tried at work)...but it is still SUPER YUMMY! Try it! You'll like it! =)
Here's the link for the recipe:
Yeah, I'm serving it as a stew...sooooo goooooood!
