  • I first tried Etouffee when visiting Louisiana 15 years ago on a motorcycle trip down the Mississippi from Minnesota. Loved it, had it at least once a day for two weeks -- sometimes twice a day. Zatarain's Etouffee mix was just the treat for someone living in Minnesota. Had my last box for the Superbowl, 2017. Now I can't find it in Minnesota anyomore.
