Shrimp Etouffee II

Rated as 4.63 out of 5 Stars

"This is a very easy shrimp etouffe recipe that utilizes your microwave! I usually add four dashes of hot pepper sauce to the dish, but bring the hot stuff to the table in case someone wants a zestier dinner! This recipe is one I learned while going to school in southern Louisiana - Geaux Tigers!"

Great recipe! So simple and good. Will make it again. I used red peppers instead of green and used salsa instead of tomato paste(I was out) and it was super!
