cajuncookingtv's picture
  Crabmeat 1⁄2 Pound
  Flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Butter 5 Tablespoon
  Cajun trinity 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Rotel tomatoes 1 Can (10 oz)
  White rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Creole seasoning 1 Teaspoon
  Chopped green onions 1 Tablespoon

To begin, in a medium saucepan – boil 2 cups water. Add 1 cup rice. Stir. Cover and turn down the heat to medium low (#3) for 20 minutes.

Next in a large deep skillet melt 1 tablespoon of butter and sauté the Cajun Trinity and minced garlic. Set aside in a bowl. In the same skillet make a roux. Melt 4 tablespoons butter on medium heat (#6). Gradually add in ¼ cup of flour stirring constantly. For an Etouffee, continue to stir until golden brown caramel coloring.

Carefully add the Cajun Trinity back to the skillet. Add Rotel tomatoes and 4 cups water. Stir well and simmer on (#4) for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning or scorching.

Fold in the crab meat. Season with 1 teaspoon of Tony’s Creole Seasoning. Simmer another 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

I thought this recipe was better than an etouffee in a restaurant. I like the video, because I could see what color the roux should be. There is no Tony seasoning available here.I used a shake each of garlic , onion, oregano, basil, cayenne, white & black pepper,thyme, and paprika. It turned out to be quite authentic.
