CRAWFISH & SHRIMP ETOUFFEE
A very rich hearty meal, I cook it occasionally for our supper club. Everyone really likes it. A lot of ingredients but really pretty easy to make. The roux either makes or breaks it.

SHRIMP AND CRAWFISH ETOUFEE
- For the Etouffee: Heat a medium cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Saute the trinity (peppers, onions and celery). Add the garlic, and saute until slightly tender. Add the Roux and deglaze with some rum to help break it down (it will flame up). Add 1 to 2 cups purified water to form a sauce. Add in the shrimp, crawfish, pepper, salt and thyme. Reduce the flame to a medium-low simmer. Add Mama's Green Creole Sauce. Stir constantly making sure the roux doesn't burn and is completely dissolved. Taste periodically to confirm desired taste. Simmer 10 to 20 minutes, until the etoufee reaches desired thickness.
- For Mama's Creole Herb Rice: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cook the brown rice in 1 cup water, covered, for 30 to 40 minutes.
- Cook the white rice in 1 cup water in a rice steamer.
- After both are cooked, empty the pans onto a cookie sheet. Mix the rice and toss with the oil, thyme and salt to taste.
- Drench the etoufee over the rice, and serve.
- Place 2 cups water, the lemon juice, oil, salt, garlic, jalapenos, green onions, yellow onions, bell peppers and parsley in a blender and process until a sauce is formed. If the blender is not large enough, you can make it in two batches.
- Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over low heat. Add the flour and stir until mixture is creamy and there are no lumps. Turn the heat down low and keep stirring until the mixture reaches the desired color (a medium or dark brown). Be careful and pay attention as not to burn the roux-- after it reaches a certain shade of brown it will begin to brown faster.
- Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven set over medium heat. Add the flour and stir continuously to make a roux. Stir the roux over medium heat until the color of peanut butter, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the onions, bell peppers, celery, and garlic to the roux, and cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes to the pot and season with the bay leaves, salt, cayenne, and 1 tablespoon of the Essence. Cook the tomatoes for 2 to 3 minutes and then whisk in the shrimp stock.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. Cook the etouffee, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes. Season the shrimp with the remaining tablespoon of Essence and add them to the pot, stirring to evenly distribute. Cook the shrimp for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they are cooked through. Add the chopped parsley to the pot and stir to combine.
- Serve immediately over steamed white rice and garnish with sliced green onion tops.
- Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
- Place the shrimp shells and heads in a large colander and rinse under cold running water for several minutes.
- Combine the shrimp shells and remaining ingredients in a heavy 6-quart stockpot, add 4 quarts water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Skim to remove any foam that rises to the surface. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes, skimming occasionally.
- Remove the stock from the heat and strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean container; let cool completely. Refrigerate the stock for up to 3 days or freeze in airtight containers for up to 2 months.
CAJUN CRAWFISH AND SHRIMP ÉTOUFFéE
An authentic Louisiana recipe with a rich and spicy fresh tomato-based roux with fresh garlic, bell peppers, celery and onions mixed with crawfish and shrimp. A little time consuming but well worth it! Serve over steamed rice with hushpuppies and/or crackers on the side.

- Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, and stir constantly until the mixture turns 'peanut butter' brown or darker, at least 15 or 20 minutes. I use a large fork with the flat side to the bottom of the pan in a side to side motion. This is your base sauce or 'roux'. It is very important to stir this constantly. If by chance the roux burns, discard and start over.
- 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.

Found in both Creole and Cajun cuisines, étouffée is most commonly made with crawfish tails, which have a distinct flavor, but crawfish have a short season and aren't readily available in most places. This version, with shrimp, is more than a worthy substitute, and an excellent dish all its own. The dish takes its name from the French word "étouffée," which nods to its protein being smothered with sauce. This recipe uses a shortcut version of a roux: The flour is added after the onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic have already been sautéed in the butter. If you omit the hot sauce, add apple cider vinegar in its place.

LOUISIANA CRAWFISH ETOUFFEE
Here in Louisiana, there's nothing better than this classic during crawfish season. This recipe is easy and can be substituted with shrimp when crawfish are out of season. Even better when served with hot garlic French bread! Start cooking the rice first since this is a quick and easy dish.

I like to serve this Cajun sensation when I entertain. Etouffee is typically served with shellfish over rice and is similar to gumbo. This dish has its roots in New Orleans and the bayou country of Louisiana. -Tamra Duncan, Lincoln, Arkansas
