  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon creole seasoning
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1/4 pound crawfish tails
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Veal or Beef Glaze (thickened veal or beef stock)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature.
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onions



Step 1

Combine the shallots, garlic, and creole seasoning in a small nonreactive saucepan and place over high heat and cook for 30 seconds. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Add the crawfish, salt, and pepper and bring back to a boil.
Stir in the glaze and bring back to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, skimming off the fat and impurities several times for 10 minutes. Turn up the heat to high, skim the remaining impurities from the top of the sauce, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

Whisk in the butter and continue to whisk until throughly incorporated, for about 30 seconds. Add the green onions and remove from the heat.
