Many Cajun recipes start with “First You Make A Roux” and Most Cajun dishes start with a good roux.
- 3/4 cup oil (Canola or Vegetable)
- 1 cup all purpose white flour
Heat a heavy skillet or cast iron pot and add oil. Once oil is heated, slowly add the flour, stirring constantly until all is blended. Continue to cook over medium to low heat, stirring constantly until flour and oil blend to form a brown roux the color of a dark copper penny.
