|1 pounds||Fresh peeled crawfish tails|
|1 large||Onion; chopped fine|
|Red & black pepper to taste|
|Crawfish fat; if available|
|⅓ cup||Green onion tops; chopped|
|2 tablespoons||Parsley; chopped|
Place first four ingredients in to a COLD BLACK pot. Partly cover pot and cook over low-medium fire for about 25 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add crawfish fat, green onion tops and parsley. Cover and cook over low heat for only 10 minutes. Pour into serving dish immediately and serve with hot rice.
Note: Don't add salt while cooking--butter usually adds enough.
Overcooking toughens crawfish and makes a "watery" gravy. A little water (½ cup) mixed with 1 teaspoon roux may be added with the crawfish fat to make extra gravy.
