    Yes, it's widely available down here, and we use it like we would any cajun seasoning.

      It rocks! http://www.slapyamama.com/Store/home.... I use it from pop corn to potato to seasoning my gumbo.

        Slap ya mama is the BEST! I could drink it. I think I have.

        Wish I knew, too. Calgary is hopeless for hot sauce. Definitely and easily purchasable stateside.

          interesting, since it's a dry cajun spice, NOT a hot sauce.

            Well, they DO make a hot sauce but it is not widely distributed, even in Louisiana. It is rather recent in their catalogue...the newest item, I think, is their etouffee sauce.

              but etouffee sauce isn't a hot sauce.

              Interesting, since some quick research shows it's both--a spice and hot sauce. You're welcome to try doing that next time.

              And YES, they make fish fry, too.

                Well, it is clear that there is some confustion... the hot sauce is one item, the etouffee is another. You could add the liquid sauce, pictured above, to the etouffee, once cooked (or before, whatthehell). The etouffee comes in little jars. I have not tried it but have seen it several places and the family seems rather happy with it. They know what they are doing.

                  I bet that etouffee sauce is amazing!

                  To clarify your confusion, the hot sauce is a NEW product (i.e. since my post on 15 November). They've had the Étouffée Sauce for some time, but that's not a "hot sauce."

                    I'll have to ask them when these things became available generally..I know the hot sauce has been in Louisiana for some time but even here it has been difficult to find as a rule... I know I bought several bottles to take to a restaurant to try out and that was sometime early this year. As to the etouffee, that has become more readily available in recent months. Something tells me they rolled out the etouffee sometime before St PAtrick's. When next I run into one of the guys I'll ask.
