 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Butter
  • 1 tb Flour
  • 1 Onion; finely chopped
  • 1 Stalk celery; finely chopped
  • 1 Bell pepper; finely chopped
  • 1 Clove garlic; finely chopped

  • Water
  • 2 tb Onion tops; chopped
  • 2 tb Parsley; minced
  • Hot rice


Melt butter and stir in flour until smooth. Saute vegetables slowly in
butter and flour mixture for 30 to 45 minutes. Or about 5 min in the
microwave. Add crawfish tails and seasonings and cook, covered, over low
heat for 15 minutes. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup hot water to obtain desired
thickness of gravy. Add onion tops and parsley. Cook 5 minutes longer and
serve over hot rice.

NOTES : Linda says: " This is a very traditional South East Texas/
Louisiana dish. I use it for dinner parties because it is so easy and
doubles easily. Make ahead and heat in microwave. If you don't like
crawfish use shrimp."
