Étouffée is a dish that I grew up eating. Étouffée has a thick, gravy like consistency that has some sort of seafood. This Louisiana classic is one of the dishes we ate a lot growing up.

I have many recipes of this delicious dish. I was shipped these air fryer silicone liners. This liners make cleaning up easier.

I created an easy Shrimp and Crawfish Etouffee. Yes, I created this dish in the air fryer. You heard it.

Here is a link to the Silicone Air Fryer Liners.
