For seasoning mix
  Salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sweet paprika 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  White pepper 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme leaves 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground turmeric 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Onion powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄2 Teaspoon
For creamy mixture
  Nonfat cottage cheese 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Canned evaporated milk 5 Ounce (1 Can)
  Chopped onions 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Defatted seafood stock 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Dry sherry 10 Tablespoon (1/2 Cup Plus 2 Tablespoons In All)
  Tomato sauce 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Sliced fresh mushrooms 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Cooked crawfish tail meat 1 Pound
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Cooked long grain white rice 3 Cup (48 tbs)

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a bowl.
Place the creamy mixture ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and creamy; set aside.
Preheat a heavy 10-inch skillet, preferably nonstick, over high heat to 350°, about 4 minutes.
Add the onions and 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mix and cook, scraping the bottom occasionally, until the onions start to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the stock and cook until the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes.
Stir in 1/2 cup of the sherry and the tomato sauce and cook until most of the liquid evaporates and the tomato sauce starts to look dry, about 3 minutes.
Add another 1/4 cup sherry, the mushrooms, crawfish tails, and the remaining seasoning mix.
Stir and cook, scraping the bottom, for 4 to 5 minutes; the mixture will thicken.
Add the pureed creamy mixture, stir, and cook just until the liquid begins to boil at the sides of the skillet.
Caution: Do not let the liquid come to a full boil, as it will "break," or curdle.
Once the liquid has started to boil, turn off the heat, stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sherry and add the butter for an even richer taste.
