Recipe Source Archives for Cajun and Creole Recipes 1 - 22
( 1 ) Roux Flower:
4 cup All purpose flour
This flour may be used in making that most basic of
Cajun sauces , the roux .
All Cajun recipies calling for a sauce begin with "First
you make a roux".
A normal roux is made with equal parts flour and oil, with water or stock added
when the roux is at the desired degree of doneness. This flour allows you to dispense with the oil and still have the desired
Place the flour in a large skillet over high heat; with a wire whisk, stir constantly for 25 minutes
or until the flour begins to turn a light brown, similar to light brown sugar . If the flour begins to darken too fast,
remove it from the heat and stir to allow the flour to darken evenly before putting it back on a lower heat setting.
it has reached the desired color, remove from the heat and continue stirring until completely cooled. Sift the flour into
a covered container and store until needed.
Note: This will tire you out
and must be done with no interruptions. If the flour is burned, throw it out and start over. It is actually much harder than
a true roux, but it is worth it to get the true flavor of the cajun dishes.
( 2 ) Roux:
1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Cooking Oil
In a heavy skillet or 2 quart
saucepan, stir together flour and cooking oil until smooth. Cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes then
reduce heat to medium. Cook and stir about 10 minutes more until a reddish brown roux is formed. DARKER
ROUX: 1. If you want a dark roux, prepare the roux as directed above, except cook and stir over medium heat about 15
minutes instead of 10 minutes or until a dark, reddish brown roux is formed.
( 3 ) Barbecued Ribs:
4 lb Pork ribs, cut in pieces
1 Large onion
1 cup Catsup
1/3 cup Worcestershire
1 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Salt
2 Dashes Tabasco sauce
2 cup Water
Place ribs in shallow
roasting pan, meaty side up. On each piece, place a slice of unpeeled lemon , a thin slice of onion .
Roast in very hot oven, 450 F degrees, 30 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients; bring to a boil and pour over ribs.
Continue baking in a moderate oven, 350 F degrees, about 2 hours, basting ribs with the sauce every
( 4 ) Mama's Cajun Chilie:
2 lb Ground chuck
1 can (12-oz) tomato juice (more
1 can (10.5-oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 Green bell pepper,
1 Onion, chopped
1 can (16-oz) kidney beans
1 can (12-oz)
6 tbl Commercial chili powder
1 tsp Salt
Diced cheddar cheese and fritos, for garnish
In a large
skillet over medium heat, cook beef until no longer pink. Drain off fat and transfer to a large pot along

( 6 ) Cajun Deep Fried Turkey:
10 gal Peanut oil
10 lb Turkey, up to 15 lbs
6 tsp Salt
6 tsp Paprika
6 tsp Cayenne
6 tsp Accent, opt
16 oz Liquid crab oil concentrate
Note: Not recommended for indoor cooking. Rinse turkey inside and out. Mix 1 part crab boil
concentrate to 4 parts water. Combine dry ingredients with crab boil solution. Adjust seasoning to taste. Inject turkey (approximately 2" apart) with mixture using syringe (available from gourmet kitchen
stores.) Cover turkey with foil and refrigerate over night. Heat oil to 350 . CAUTION: Use a grease thermometer to
monitor the oil. It may ignite if the temperature goes beyond 375 . Put turkey in basket and CAREFULLY
lower it into the pot. Cook 5 minutes per pound. Check in 1 hour using a meat thermometer. NOTE This
is a great dish, but should only be attempted by someone who has experience with doing this. It is also expensive due to the
large amount of oil needed.
( 7 ) Cajun Fried Turkey:
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Cayenne
1 10 pound dressed
turkey, (10 to 12 pounds) preferably fresh (never frozen) and not injected with butter seasonings,
or other flavorings
4 tbl Unsalted butter
3/4 cup Onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup Celery, finely chopped
2 tbl Green peppers, from hot pepper sauce, finely chopped
1 tbl Salt, plus
1 tsp Salt
1 tbl Cayenne
tsp Blank pepper
1/2 cup Chicken stock
2 tbl Worcestershire sauce
5 gal Vegetable or peanut oil
If at all possible, select a fresh (never
frozen) turkey and one that has not been injected with butter , seasonings, or other flavorings. You need
a food injector with a fairly large hole to inject the turkey. Do this a day ahead, then cover and refrigerate until ready
to cook. It is best to fry the turkey outdoors, using a propane burner or other outdoor cooking equipment on a concrete slab
or some type of solid, level, and non slippery surface. A few drops of oil will probably bubble over, so have some old towels
handy for wiping up slippery spots . Thoroughly combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
To prepare the turkey: If your turkey comes with a metal prong that holds the cavity closed, remove and set aside. Remove
the giblets and neck from the turkey checking both ends. Remove any "pop-up" doneness indicator. In a large
skillet , melt the butter over high heat until half melted. Add the onions and saute about 3 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Add the celery , garlic , hot peppers , salt , red pepper , and the black
pepper. Cook until the mixture is a rich golden brown, about 3 minutes, stirring and scraping the pan bottom frequently. Add
the stock and worcestershire and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Blend on highest speed until mixture is a very smooth puree , pushing sides down as needed.
Rinse and drain turkey
well. Pour puree into the injector and inject into the turkey. Insert to the bone or to the depth of the injector needle,
without piercing through the cavity. To fill the injection hole with as much puree as possible, begin to draw the needle out
while injecting firmly. Make holes about 2 inches apart and use most of the puree in the meatest areas. Be sure to inject
some of the puree in the upper joint of the wing. Pour any remaining puree into the cavity of the turkey and rub it over the
inner surface. Set turkey aside. Sprinkle the reserved seasoning mix evenly over the bird and inside the cavity, rubbing it
in by hand and using it all. Place the neck back inside the cavity. Close the legs with the metal prong or tie with kitchen
twine. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Equipment: Assemble all equipment and utensils before
starting to fry the turkey. You will need: A propane burner or other heat source with an adjustable control capable of a strong
A very deep pot (8 gallon or larger) so the turkey will be totally submerged in hot
oil with plenty left over a depth of several extra inches for the oil to bubble in without bubbling over.
A large boiling
or fry basket large enough to hold the turkey and fitting into the pot. The turkey will be slipped into and lifted out of
the bubbling hot oil in the basket.
A thermometer that reads up to at least 400 degrees and has a long probe and clip
so it can be left in the oil while the turkey fries.
Two strong utensils for turning the turkey (20
inches or longer). It may be necessary to weight the turkey down by inserting a long-handled heatproof fork securely
under the metal prong or by pressing down with some utensil. Do not use anything that would keep a section of skin from being
exposed to the hot oil for frying.
A large platter or pan lined with several thicknesses of paper bags to drain the
turkey once it's fried.
Plenty of hot pads.
Old towels to deal with any spilt oil.
Let the turkey come to room temperature for 1 hour before frying. Place the turkey on its back inside the fry basket. Place
the basket in the EMPTY pot and measure the turkey's height in the pot with a ruler. Remove basket
and turkey. Place pot on the burner and fill with oil at least to cover the height of the turkey. Remember, the oil will be
higher in the pot with the turkey submerged. It is recommended that a dress rehearsal be held to make sure that
you can slip the turkey into the pot gently. Any splashing with super hot oil can be very dangerous. To
fry: Heat oil to 400 degrees. VERY CAREFULLY AND SLOWLY lower the basket containing the
turkey into the oil. Immediately adjust the flame down slightly and maintain a temperature lowered to as close to 350 degrees
as possible. Oil should be hot enough to bubble during frying but not so hot that it burns the meat. Make sure the turkey
is submerged while frying.
Let the turkey fry until the juices run clear when you insert a skewer into the breast meat.
Total frying time will be between 35 and 45 minutes. The fried turkey will look very dark brown when done. Carefully remove
the basket and turkey from the hot oil and place turkey breast side down on a platter or pan lined with several thicknesses
of brown paper bags and let drain for about 5 minutes. Then turn turkey over to drain and cool about 15 minutes before slicing.
Again, be very careful with the hot oil. It is deadly.

( 19 ) Cajun Shrimp: Recipe Source
1/2 cup Olive oil
6 Garlic cloves, chopped
4 Green onions,
chopped or you can use one regular onion diced
12 Dried hot red chiles
14 dsh Hot pepper sauce
2&1/2 lb Med.
shrimp, peeled, tails left on
1/2 cup Soy sauce
For years my favorite recipe has been a dish called Cajun Shrimp
, which I'm about to pass along. But first let me say that what everybody likes about it is the dipping sauce that
the shrimp swim in and that you soak up with french bread.
So here's the real reason for this message since we live
in a small town,"Corsicana Tx." and not near the coast, decent shrimp is
hard to come by. So I thought I'd just make the sauce, without shrimp. Quick, easy and wonderful!!!
oil over med-high heat in a large skillet, add garlic and saute a bit.
Add onion if
using regular onion let it saute a while too. Add chiles and hot pepper sauce and simmer for three minutes. add soy sauce and
shrimp and simmer 2 to 4 minutes till shrimp are done. Serve in bowls with bread for dipping.
that when I assembled the ingredients I left out the shrimp. That's because, the last time I made it I just made the sauce
for dipping. If you actually have shrimp, you add it when you add the soy sauce.. if you're not gonna use shrimp, you might
add a few drops of fish sauce instead, but beware of saltiness the combo of soy sauce and fish sauce can make a salty
