What Is Poutine?

Anyone can throw out tortilla chips and guacamole, but try amping up your game time snacking by making something that everyone will remember. And love.

The first time I had poutine or had even heard of it was at Disney. We had reservations at Le Cellier in Canada at Epcot so I pulled up the menu online. I saw a whole menu of “poutine”. Figured out by the descriptions that it was basically french fries with a cheese sauce, topped with whatever you could imagine. But the one I zeroed in on was the lobster. Lobster with cheese sauce all on top of french fries? I might even skip the steak for that one.

So when we got home we wanted a more budget friendly version of that delicious poutine recipe and this Shrimp Poutine was the answer!

Ingredients For Shrimp Poutine

Another trick to making this amazing snack seam easy was buying a bag of precooked frozen shrimp. Those little guys that you would use to make shrimp salad or something along those lines, you don’t need large expensive shrimp for this poutine recipe!

  • 2 pound bag Crinkle Cut french fries
  • 12 ounce bag of small, frozen cooked shrimp
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 scallions, chopped

For the Cheese Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning

While the french fries are cooking you can make the sauce and cook up the shrimp. The sauce is quick to throw together and the shrimp cook up even faster.

When you’re ready to assemble, pile the french fries in a dish…

Grab the shrimp and load them up on top of the fries. You can do this in individual dishes or one large serving dish. We’ve even made these right on the sheet pan that we cooked our french fries!

Now pour that awesome, creamy cheese sauce all over everything and dig in. If there’s extra sauce just serve it on the side for dipping – the more sauce the better, trust me on that!

Instructions

    I have never thought of pairing shrimp with the Alexia fries but since I’m a fan of both, I have to try this now! Looks delicious! #client

    Used this recipe mostly for the sauce. Substituted low-fat mozz because it was what we had on hand, just in case you wanted to try another cheese. Absolutely AWESOME! An easy meal that adapts well. May try with grits :) Easy to make, relatively low fat (used skim milk, still creamy) and a somewhat healthy “junk food” meal!
