How to Prepare
"Crawfish Au Gratin"

Au Gratin Dish

  • In a heavy sauce pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat.

  • Add diced onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic to the butter. Reduce heat to medium and saute until wilted (do not brown vegetables), which will take about 5 minutes.

  • Add the crawfish to the mixture and continue to saute for an additional 5 minutes.

  • Sprinkle the flour into the mixture and blend well.

  • Add the whipping cream to the mixture and stir constantly until you achieve a thick, creamy sauce.

  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and allow sauce to simmer.

  • Add the white wine, lemon juice and Cajun seasoning to the sauce.

  • Sprinkle in 1/2 of the cheddar cheese, stirring constantly.

  • If needed, add salt, pepper or additional Cajun seasoning to taste.

  • Add the green onions and parsley to the sauce.

    Note: If the sauce is too thick, add a little hot water to thin.

  • Place equal amounts of crawfish sauce in each of 6 Au Gratin dishes.

  • Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese equally on top of the crawfish sauce.

  • Preheat the oven to 375°. Bake the Crawfish Au Gratin for 15 minutes or until the cheddar cheese begins to bubble.

  • Serve with a salad and garlic bread. A glass of wine is optional.
