crawfish etoufee (A-TOO-FAY

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Here is a recipe i promised i would post.
1 lb peeled crawfish tails
1 stick butter or margerine
1 med onion (diced)
1/2 bellpepper (diced)
2 cloves garlic ( minced fine)
1 tblsp worcestershire
1 tblsp paprika
2 tblsp cornstarch
1 tblsp chopped green onion tops
2 cups water

If you can't get crawfish you can use shrimp.

melt butter or margerine in a stock pot ( DO NOT USE CAST IRON!!!)
Iron pots will cause the crawfish to turn an ugly grey color.
season crawfish or shrimp w/ you favorite cajun seasoning or old bay.
Add paprika to margerine and sautee tails or shrimp for about 5 min.
Remove crawfish and set aside. To pot add onions ,bell pepper and garlic.
Sautee vegetables for at least 10 min. Return craw fish tails to pot and add 2 cups water and add worcestershire. Lower heat and simmer for 40 min ,Stirring frequently. Check seasoning and reseason if needed.
Add water to cornstarch to make slurry and add a little at a time untill slightly thickened.
Serve over rice and garnish w/ green onion tops.
This recipe only serves 4 light eaters so usually i make this X 4.
As with most cajun food this is allways better the second day.

Recipe sounds good but where would a person find crawfish tails?

Do crawfish have to be cooked while alive like lobster do or can you get frozen tails?

This type food is scarce in Kansas...

crawfish tails

frozen tails should be avaiable at any seafood mkt . Wal mart has them here. or if you want you can get them shipped in.
This is the main seafood mkt here in baton rouge and they ship nationwide. .

Hey Beer, we can get 10LB bags of frozen whole crawfish (raw) here at the Price Cutter grocery chain. I'm thinking wally-world has same....if you want I can dry ice a styrofoam shipper and overnight ya some. Yeah I know it could get expensive, but that would be too cool! tongue.gif

The more I think about it, with your local mail problems getting my letter I could probably drive them up to you in a couple week's less time it would take for you to get them by mail!

We may have to do a weekend venture to Springfield one of these weekends...

It would be a good way to have a cheap vacation and maybe we could meet up down there...

It has been a few years since I have been down and would like to see what all has changed, My wife is from just about 60 milesn or so east of there a town called Mountain Grove...
