6. Now stuff the crawfish body with this mixture. Any leftover mixture can be rolled out into balls.
7. Next put these onto the baking tray and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
8. For the Roux: In a flat bottom stainless steel skillet or cast iron skillet melt the butter and gradually add in flour and continue to stir with a flat edged spatula until dark brown color. You can also use 1 cup of Canola oil instead of the butter.
9. Transfer Roux to the Cajun Trinity pot. Stir well.
10. Next add chicken stock and bring it to a boil. Keep boiling for 45 minutes. Keep on stiring to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan.
11. Once it beging to thicken, add in the tomato sauce, minced garlic, seasoning and one pound of crawfish tails.

13. Add the stuffed crawfish and/or crawfish balls and simmer another 5-10 minutes.

WOW ! CrawFish Bisque- That looks delicious enough. However, there's just one request -if you could describe what Tony's Creole Seasoning and Cajun Trinity are, it will be very helpful because many of us can prepare the substitutes based on the ingredients, if you can't find the mentioned items.
