Chef/Owner Brian Landry of New Orleans' Jack Rose and Nashville's Marsh House loves making this etouffee during the colder months. Landry recommends making big batches of this Creole stew because it tastes even better the next day. Serve it with cooked rice on a chilly night.
Creole sauce is a hallmark of New Orleans cooking and takes time and a bit of technique to get right. It’s usually mixed with shrimp and served over rice for shrimp Creole, but it can be used to braise anything from green beans to wild game. A good homemade stock and well-made brown roux are essential. Okra isn’t traditional, but I like to add a cupful in with the sautéed vegetables for flavor and thickening. The good news is, except for the final step of sautéing the protein or vegetables, it can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to a week or frozen. Once you have this base, you can go in infinite directions.With a quart of Creole Mother Sauce in the refrigerator, a company-worthy dinner is only minutes away. Heat up the sauce while you cook the rice, toss a salad, and heat a loaf of bread. You can simply drop the shrimp into the simmering sauce, but I like to season the shrimp separately and give them a quick sauté to add a little more caramelization.This recipe originally appeared in GW Fins' book, "The Deep End of Flavor," and is reproduced here with permission from Gibbs Smith Publishing.
