  1. In a stock pot, melt butter over medium heat. When butter is bubbling, add flour to make a roux, stirring constantly to prevent or remove any lumps. Cook the roux for 5 minutes. Do not brown.
  2. Stir in onions and bell peppers; saute 10 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add garlic, and saute for 3 minutes. Stir in crawfish tails. Slowly pour in enough water to reach a little thicker than soup-like consistency. Season with cumin, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Very good recipe and easy. We added thyme, basil and bay leaf and instead of water we used chicken broth. We will make again and again.

This is really good etouffee. I added some items such as bay leaf, thyme, paprika (quite a bit), and cayenne. I also used shrimp instead of crawfish. Next time I will use broth instead of wat...

I'm sorry, I don't agree with all the other rave reviews...I thought this was very plain and extremely bland. I've never had etouffee before, so if I don't know what I'm talking about,sorry, gue...
