the Chilau Way

Etouffee the Chilau way from Michael Anderson on Vimeo.

Etouffee - pronounced (uh-too-fay) French for "smothered," etouffee is a dish of seafood or meat simmered in roux sauce. 

A style of Creole cuisine mainly produced in the U.S. state of Louisiana, Etouffee is a dish that is often served with rice or pasta. Basically, if you’ve never tasted it before, it’s a dish full of vegetables, shrimp, and shellfish smothered in a Cajun-style sauce made from roux and tomatoes. The dish is seasoned with onions, celery, bell pepper, green onion, garlic and herbs. There are many ways to make Etouffee but one of the simplest yet delicious version is this Chilau way.
