  • 1 cup butter

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 onions, minced

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, diced

  • 16 ounces cleaned crawfish tails

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • teaspoon hot sauce

  • salt and pepper to taste


  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.
