About Crawfish Pot Pies

Crawfish makes a great pot pie and is well worth giving it a try. It has become one of my comfort foods that whenever I have had a day, this is what I want. A bit spicy, creamy, and so good.

Ingredients

  • 1 package Puff pastry
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 2 large Potatoes, Cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 Red bell pepper, Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Celery, Chopped
  • 1 cup Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic, Minced
  • 1 cup Frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 Tablespoons All-purpose flour
  • 1 pound Cooked crawfish tail, Peeled, and drained.
  • 1 can Fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup Chicken broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt, To taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper, To taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out a sheet of puff pastry until 1/4 inch thick. Cut into four squares and place on the parchment-lined baking pan, and refrigerate until ready for use.
  3. In a large fry pan or cast-iron, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add potatoes, onions, bell peppers, celery, frozen vegetables, and garlic. Cook frequently, stirring while scraping the bottom to prevent potatoes and vegetables from sticking. Cook until potatoes start getting soft, about 10 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium and add flour, stirring to break up any lumps. Cook while constantly stirring until the mixture starts to think and the flour turns golden brown. About 3 minutes.
  5. Add crawfish, tomatoes, broth, cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper, stirring well. Cook often, stirring until it gets thick, about 5 minutes.
  6. Spoon mixture into four ramekins or one late pie plate. Top each with a square of puff pastry. Cut two small slits into the top of each one. Brush the top of each pie with melted butter and sprinkle with paprika.
  7. Place the ramekins onto the parchment-lined baking dish. Place in oven, reduce heat to 400, and bake 15-20 minutes until crust is golden brown.
