This shrimp stew is delicious the next day and also freezes, though shrimp can soften somewhat.
I use small-to-medium sized raw shrimp. You can use any size shrimp you like. It is also possible to use precooked shrimp, but add them in at the last step and just heat them through. Make sure they are thawed before you add them to your Étouffée.
