Just the thought of hanging around a firehouse kitchen in New Orleans
sends me into Cajun/Creole fits! These guys have the most wonderful
selection of foods and traditions. How hard it must be to jump up from the
table and head for a fire when a dish as fine as this one has just been
served up. John Alfortish, of the New Orleans fire department, sent us this
jewel. The chief has been cooking in a firehouse for twenty years!

If using frozen puff-pastry shells, bake according to directions and set

Cook the flour and butter together in a 3-quart heavy saucepan to form a
roux. Do not brown. Add the cream, stirring constantly until it thickens.
Add the thyme, paprika, garlic, and the 2 peppers to taste. Do not salt at
this time. Simmer very slowly for 15 minutes.

Add the crawfish and green onions to the sauce. Salt to taste. Simmer 15
minutes. Spoon mixture into the pastry shells and garnish with the parsley
and lemon.

A big green salad is a must with this rich dish. I also enjoy Apple and
Cabbage (see recipe).

NOTE: If you do not wish to use pastry shells, this dish is very good
over rice or pasta.
