Menu Monday: Cajun Shrimp & Crawfish Etoufee



Cajun Shrimp & Crawfish Etoufee

To save time, buy pre-chopped vegetables at your local grocer.

You'll need...

1/3 cup canola 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 tablespoons Louisiana-style hot sauce (I use Crystal's)
1/3 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (optional)
2 tablespoons seafood seasoning
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup fish stock
1 pound crawfish tails
1 pound medium shrimp - peeled and deveined

To make...

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour; stir constantly until the mixture turns 'peanut butter' brown or darker, at least 15 or 20 minutes.

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 cayenne pepper (if using) and add the crawfish and shrimp. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the shrimp are opaque.

ENJOY!
