A cajun sunday lunch/ Crawfish etoufee.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Decided to use some crawfish leftover from the boil to make an etoufee.
I had 3 lbs of tails leftover from our last boil in the freezer. Thawed them and got out the big pot .
(Recipe to follow)
Diced , onions ,celery , bell pepper ( cajun trinity).
also diced fine 4 cloves garlic ( gotta keep the vampires away)

sauteed the trinity in butter till clear then added garlic and cooked 5 more min.
added crawfish water and seasoning and cooked for 30 min.
made a cornstarch slurry and added to thicken.
add parsley and green onions and cook for 5 more min.

Decided to do fried eggplant medallions to serve the etoufee over instead of the usual rice.
Sliced eegplant in 1/4" slices and marinated for 1 hr in seasoned buttermilk.
Breaded the eggplant in half masa flour and half all pourpose flour seasoned w/ cajun dust.
fried till golden brown

Battery went dead in camera b4 i could get a plated pic.
But i got leftovers .so i'll try then.
Forgot the recipe!
3 lbs crawfish tails ( can also use shrimp)
1/2 lb butter
1 1/2 cup diced onion

1 cup diced celery

Man oh man how I long for a good etoufee. Or even just some good mud bugs. Around here all you can get are farm raised crawfish. I guess they are better than no crawfish at all but I sure do miss the ones we caught ourselves.

But atleast you give me a good recipe for the Etoufee so thanks for that and I'm going to go get a second job so I can afford some good ole crawfish for this recipe. Thanks E PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
