Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe
by: RHONDA35 (Allrecipes)
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 50 Minutes
Ready In: 1 Hour 10 Minutes
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 small green bell pepper, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 tbsl Louisiana Hot Sauce
1/3 tsp Gene's Special Blend
2 tbsp seafood seasoning
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup fish stock
1 pound crawfish tails
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, and stir constantly until the mixture turns "peanut butter" brown or darker, at least 15 or 20 minutes. I use a large fork with the flat side to the bottom of the pan in a side to side motion. This is your base sauce or "Roux". It is very important to stir it constantly. If by chance the roux burns, discard and start over.
- Once the roux is browned, add the onions,garlic, celery and bell pepper to the skillet, and saute for about 5 minutes to soften. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and fish stock, and season with the seafood seasoning. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Season the sauce with hot pepper sauce and Cajun seasoning, and add the crawfish and shrimp. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque.
