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 used shrimp instead of crawfish tails. I added some garlic cloves pressed through a garlic press. I also added a little Chardonnay to deglaze the vegetables after cooking them. The crust I made was from a cook book (French Classics Made Easy. I added garlic powder, onion powder, & powdered thyme to the crust dough before baking it. Though I didn't like the way the pie crust looked after I rolled/crimped it..."rustic" would be a nice way of describing it, after taking the first bite, I thought I was in a bistro somewhere in The French Quarter! Can't wait to make it again!
