Shrimp Étouffée

The spirit – and flavors – of New Orleans come to life with 15-minute Shrimp Étouffée. Start with a roux seasoned with the pure McCormick® flavor of oregano, thyme and garlic powder. Next, add chicken broth and tomato paste to create a rich, thick sauce. Toss in the shrimp, serve over rice and share a little southern tradition with the ones you love.
