Now that you have my homemade Old Bay seasoning recipe, I've included a great dish you can use it in...

An authentic Louisiana recipe with a rich and spicy fresh tomato based roux with fresh garlic, bell peppers, celery and onions mixed with crawfish and shrimp. A little time consuming but well worth the effort. Serve over steamed rice with hush puppies and/or crackers on the side. Yum.

So just a warning--this is hot and spicy. If you're not sure about the level of heat, add less hot sauce to start--you can always add more, but can't take it away once it's in there.

CRAWFISH AND SHRIMP ETOUFFEE RECIPE

1/3 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 TBS Louisiana-style hot sauce
1/3 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
2 TBS Old Bay seasoning, recipe above
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 cup fish stock
1 lb crawfish tails
1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 TBS fresh parsley, chopped
3 TBS chopped green onions

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, and stir constantly until the mixture turns 'peanut butter' brown or darker, at least 15 or 20 minutes.

This is your base sauce or 'Roux'. It is very important to stir this constantly. If by chance the roux burns, discard and start over.

Once the roux is browned, add the onions, garlic, celery and bell pepper to the skillet, and saute for about 5 minutes to soften. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and fish stock, and season with the seafood seasoning. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Season the sauce with hot pepper sauce and cayenne pepper (if using), and add the crawfish and shrimp. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque.

Garnish with chopped parsley and green onion.

NOTE:
Instead of crawfish, add diced chicken with the shrimp. Delicious.

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
