Crawfish Corn Maque Choux

This kicked up version of the classic Corn Maque Choux can be served as an entree on its own or as a side dish for grilled or fried fish.

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons Essence
  • 4 cups fresh white corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 pound cooked crawfish tails
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • Rice, as accompaniment
  • Chopped green onions, garnish
  • Finely diced tomatoes, garnish

Directions

  • In a large saucepan or skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions, celery, and bell peppers, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and 1 teaspoon of the Essence, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the corn and cook, stirring, until fragrant and just golden, about 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the chicken stock and cook until almost all evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of stock and cook until almost all evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add the crawfish, remaining 2 teaspoons of Essence, and salt, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the cream, bring to a boil, and cook until the crawfish are warmed through and the sauce is thickened, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Remove from the heat and serve with rice, garnished with the green onions and tomato concasse.
