Easy Crawfish Etouffee Recipe

November 16, 2014

Being a Latina with German roots growing up in a Mexican neighborhood, who would have thought one of my favorite cuisines would be Cajun! I searched all across the web for an easy crawfish etouffee recipe. The ones that I found didn’t serve more than 4 people. With all the family get-togethers, I needed a recipe that would serve everyone enough to have a full belly.  This recipe serves about 6-8, for a smaller meal, cut ingredients in half.

Ingredients needed:

3 lbs crawfish tails (thawed)
2 large chopped yellow onions
A bundle of chopped green onions
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 fresh chopped tomatoes
3 cans of medium Rotel (you can use mild, medium, or spicy depending on how much heat you like.)
3 cans of Campbell’s golden mushroom soup
3 tablespoons flour
2 1/2 sticks of butter
2 tablespoons of Cajun seasonings
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Garlic Powder (to taste)
Cayenne Pepper (to taste)
White steamed rice

Directions:
Melt 1 1/2 stick of butter on medium high heat; add in your onions and green onions and sauté them until soft. Then add your chopped tomato, along with the Cajun seasoning. When adding salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper, start off with 1 teaspoon and just add a dash here and there according to taste. Cook the vegetable and spiced mixture for about 25 minutes and/or the till veggies are real soft and look smooth.

Once your veggies are done, add in your cans of Rotel. To make in add 1 tablespoon at a time of flour (add more butter if needed) to make a roux to thicken mixture. When the flour is mixed in well and the mixture is smooth, add cans of golden mushroom soup with 1-3 cups of water (depending on how thick or watery you want your etouffee) and crawfish tails. Stir the etouffee well and cook covered on medium for about 30 minutes. Be sure to keep tasting mixture and add spices (salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper) as needed. Add the rest of the butter to pot and cook uncovered for another 20 minutes.

*As your etouffee is almost ready, cook up your steamed white rice.
