    This is a classic and very good recipe. And the cookbook you mentioned is great (I have a copy) and can be purchased at Pelican Press for $20. (Google Pelican Press) Etouffee which means smothered or braised is actually more Creole than Cajun, but is made in both Creole and Cajun country. Excellent post.
