Adjust level of cajun/creole seasoning to make etouffee as hot or mild as you would like. As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish. All electric pressure cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own electric pressurecooker and time adjusted as needed.
