Recipe adopted from Al Bergeron @ Bayou LaFouche. Taught me how to cook. This is the classic adaptation. Make sure the bisquick is WELL disolved in the ice cold water. Cajun Land is preferred but Zatarains ok if combined with Siracha Pepper sauce. (2:1) Pre-prepared rouge ok, but loses body. - Chef Leonardo
Up until the late 1950s, crawfish was eaten only by the fishermen who caught the crustaceans in the Atchafalaya Basin. Now, crawfish is king and is much sought after by both visitors and locals alike. This étouffée is a classic Cajun-style dish.
