2 Bay Leaves
1 Tbl Bayou Seafood Blend
3 garlic cloves, minced

Crawfish Etouffee is an under-an-hour dish that anyone can master. Unlike many of the long-cooking, make-a-roux dishes (totally worthy it, btw), etouffee is a quick-cooking bowl of comfort. Blonde roux binds things together while Bayou Seafood Blend brings home the flavor. Serve this with plenty of steamed rice and sliced scallions. Spicy and delicious!


1.In a large skillet or braising pan, melt the butter and add the onion, celery, bell pepper and bay leaves. Sweat (saute without browning) for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are very soft and the onions are clear.
2.Add in the Bayou Seafood Blend, garlic, tomatoes and sherry. Saute for 3 minutes.
3.Add in the flour and stir to create a paste. Saute for 2 minutes.
4.Add in the stock and crawfish. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes.
5.Taste and adjust with salt if needed. Before serving stir in the green onions and parsley.
6.Serve over steamed rice.
