Taking its name from the French for "smothered," étouffée originated in the bayous and backwaters of southern Louisiana. Our signature version of this hearty stew is handcrafted by Louisiana chefs who make it extra-luxurious by using lots of fresh shrimp and crabmeat. The seafood is smothered in a rich, velvety blend of tomatoes, onions and sweet peppers, all perfectly seasoned with classic Creole spices. A real timesaver, our étouffée is ready for your next gathering—just heat and serve over white or brown rice.

Upon receipt, the unopened étouffée can be stored in the freezer for up to 1 year (6 to 8 months if completely thawed). The unopened pouch can be refrigerated for 7 to 8 days or will keep at room temperature for 3 to 4 hours. Opened étouffée can be frozen and will keep for 1 to 2 months. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days or at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours.
Defrost étouffée in refrigerator overnight, or thaw under cold running water until fluid. Bring 2 to 3 quarts of water to a boil in a saucepot. Reduce to a simmer and place étouffée pouch into the water, then simmer 10 to 20 minutes until warmed through.
