Crawfish Pie

Yield:
One 9-inch pie, 6 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped, seeded, and peeled tomatoes, or 1/2 cup chopped canned tomatoes
  • 1 pound crawfish tails
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 recipe Basic Savory Pie Crust
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, celery, salt, cayenne, and black pepper. Saute for about 8 minutes, or until golden and wilted. Add the tomatoes and cook for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the crawfish tails and parsley. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Dissolve the flour in the water and add to the pan. Stir for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat. Let cool for at least 30 minutes. Place the crust in the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan and crimp the edges. Pour the crawfish mixture into the pie crust. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the edges of the pie crust are golden. Cool for several minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.

    I've made this dish a couple of times, with some modifications.... Instead of one big pie I used frozen tart cups for mini-pies (which makes about ten) and I cook them for about half an hour. I found the original recipe to be a little bland, so I added more cayenne pepper. I'm still experimenting with the filling too... not thick enough for my New Orleans tastes! I would suggest 3/4 a cup of water and add the flour/water mix (roux) gradually.
    Maybe because im a but i always find recipes online very frustrating
     
     1 cup of chopped onions???.. there are 3 types of onions.. white yellow and red.. it would be nice to specify what type of onion.. i bought white because thats the one i do most of my cooking with
     
     
     a can of chopped tomatoes... they only have.. diced, stewed, petite cut, crushed, sauce, puree, etc.. the don't have chopped tomatoes..
     
     and finally
     
     1/2 recipe Basic Savory Pie Crust??? a little note could be nice that said.. print out another recipe!!!.. thankfully i had my iphone and i was able to but more stuff.. not cool.. like i said specially for people like me who are new to the whole cooking thing
     
     ill post how it everything came out
     
    And this is how you learn to cook... I understand your frustration, but we've all worked through these type of questions. In case this might help - onions usually means yellow or white; chopped tomoatoes usually means diced or cut; and savory pie crust - I would've googled that one too and I'm from New Orleans. Happy cooking.
    I made this at a party and it was great! I used frozen crawfish because that was all I could find and they were kinda fishy but the recipe was really good. I will use shrimp next time.
    What a bunch of wimps my family is at times. I loved it! My wife ate it. My kids wouldn't touch it. I guess crawfish is a somewhat mature taste.
    My family loved this recipe I loved it so fast and easy to make, great dish for company as well, I added a top crust and added a tbsp. chopped garlic this recipe well be a family favorite!
    This was a quick and easy recipe to follow. I substituted the water for cream. It was excellent! My family loved it. I made it the following week for friends.
