  4. After the stock is done, strain it and leave it to cool.
  5. To start off with the Étouffée, we need to prepare the roux for which you need to take another long bottom pot and heat some butter or vegetable oil in it, add the flour and cook it until brown for about 8 minutes. There should not be any lumps.
  6. As soon as the roux is ready and thick, add the chopped garlic, onion, celery, bell pepper and the herbs. Cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  7. When the vegetables are almost cooked, add the tomato paste and mix well. Cook for about 2 minutes.
  8. Now, slowly add the reserved shrimp stock and add it to the pot little by little so that it gets incorporated well and absorbed by the roux. Add additional stock as needed to make a sauce about the thickness of syrup.
  9. Now, add the shrimps along with the Cajun seasoning and salt and pepper according to taste and mix well. Turn the heat to lowest and cook for about 8-10 minutes.
