SAUCE BOSS INDUCTED INTO THE CANADIAN BLUES MUSEUM
On February 27, 2009, Bill Wharton was inducted into the Canadian Blues Museum. Here’s the star on the wall. A smoking blues set and gumbo pot lit up the town of Windsor, Ontario that night. The party went late that night and the band and fans had a few Canadian beers to toast the occasion.
SPRINGTIME MEANS CRAWFISH ETOUFEE
Yep it’s getting on toward crawfish season. Time to pinch the tail.
1 pound crawfish tails, thawed (you can find these in Louisiana for sure, but nowadays many of the larger supermarket chains have it in their frozen seafood section)
1 green pepper
1 large onion
1 stick of butter
3 cloves of garlic, minced
3 bay leaves
1 cup water
Salt to taste
1/4 cup LIQUID SUMMER HOT SAUCE
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Sauté onions and pepper in butter 10-15 minutes. Add crawfish tails and sauté another 5 minutes. Add rest of ingredients, and simmer down for 30-40 minutes, stirring often. Taste for spiciness and salt. Serve over rice or over broiled fish like trout or grouper. Feeds 4 as a main dish, 6 if served over fish.
