Whatever You Want Sauce Piquant


Sauce Piquant – A hot spicy stew made with tomato paste or sauce, roux and most any meat available. The most popular is seafood, fish, chicken, turtle or alligator sauce piquant. As the recipe implies though, use whatever you want!!!


  • 1 pound crawfish (you can also use shrimp, crabmeat, or chicken)
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup onions
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can diced ROTEL tomatoes, drained


Step 1

Make a roux. Melt the butter in a heavy Dutch Oven pot and add flour. Brown the flour until it is the color of a paper bag.

Step 2

Add onions and bell peppers and sauté a few minutes. Add the tomato sauce and ROTEL tomatoes. Add water and bring to a soft boil.

Step 3

Add pre-seasoned crawfish and cook on medium to low heat for 30-45 minutes.

Editor's note - Some cooks prefer to add the seafood/crawfish in the last 10 minutes of the cooking process.
