1/4 cup water
Pinch of flour
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup yellow onion
1/2 cup celery, chopped
2 bay leaves
1/2 cup green onion, sliced
2 tablespoons parsley
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoon parsley
Garlic, as desired
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 pound crawfish tail meat
4 slices Swiss cheese
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
Fresh baked hoagie rolls
Herb Butter

Wash alligator thoroughly and sauté in herb butter for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.
Cook etoufee by combining butter, onion, celery, bell pepper, bay leaves and garlic. Sauté until tender, squeezing lemon juice while incorporating Cajun spices, cayenne pepper, and parsley. Add water and flour; simmer. Add crawfish, green onion and a little chardonnay. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes until crawfish is done. Blend in food processor.
