Very satisfying meal and truly a value. I estimated per serving costs with rice included were about $2/2.50. It doesn't taste very Cajun and not like a lot of etouffees I've had, but I think so simple seasoning could change that if you wanted a more cajun feel. Take into account the prep/active time doesn't include actually chopping the vegetables, so if you're a medium-speed chopper your prep time would probably be double. I ended up adding an extra can of tomatoes and in the future I'll use a medium size onion instead of a large one. I also added a large carrot. The dish needed extra salt in my opinion, but the flavor was great. Additionally, I used 1.5 pounds of catfish (that was taken into my estimation of price as well) and it could probably have stretched to 5 or 6 servings (my price estimation was at 4 servings). I only used 1.5 pounds because it was the easiest when I was ordering the fish at the market. Leftovers were better because the dish had time to really sit and the sauce blended well. I'll definitely be making this again.
