Louisiana Cheese Fries with Crayfish and Gravy

In chef Kelly English's Southern twist on 'poutine Canadienne', the fries are topped with spicy pimento cheese, andouille gravy and crawfish, crab or shrimp.

Kelly English   |   October 2013




Ingredients

Pimento Cheese


  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1 jalapeño

  • 1 pound white cheddar cheese (3 /4 cups shredded)

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

  • ½ tablespoon cilantro (chopped)

  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice (freshly squeezed)

  • â…› teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground pepper


Andouille Gravy

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • ½ pound andouille sausage (cut into 1/4-inch dice)

  • ¾ cup onion (finely chopped)

  • â…“ cup green bell pepper (finely chopped)

  • ½ tablespoon garlic (minced)

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup tomato (chopped)

  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock

  • ¼ cup scallion (thinly sliced)

  • Kosher salt


Poutine

  • 4 cups french fries (cooked)

  • ½ pound crayfish tails, jumbo lump crabmeat or chopped shrimp (cooked and shelled)



Directions

Make the Pimento Cheese
  • Roast the red pepper and jalapeño directly over a gas flame or under a preheated broiler, turning, until charred all over. Transfer the red pepper and jalapeño to a large bowl, cover tightly with plastic and let cool for 15 minutes. Peel, seed and stem the red pepper and jalapeño, then cut them into 1/4-inch dice.

  • In a large bowl, mix half of the red pepper with half of the jalapeño; reserve the rest for another use. Add the cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, lemon juice and cayenne to the bowl and mix well; season with salt and pepper. Chill for at least 2 hours.


    Meanwhile, Make the Gravy
  • In a medium cast-iron skillet, heat the oil. Add the andouille and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the fat is rendered and the sausage is crispy, 8 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, 3 minutes. Stir in the green pepper and garlic and cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant, 2 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and stir until incorporated; add the tomato and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until it starts to break down, 3 minutes. Add the stock and bring to a simmer; cook until the gravy is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 5 minutes. Stir in the scallions and season with salt.

    Make the Poutine
  • Preheat the oven to 450°. Spread the french fries on a heatproof serving platter. Spoon the gravy all over the fries and top with the crayfish. Dollop 1 cup of the pimento cheese all over the fries; reserve the rest for another use. Bake the poutine for about 5 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and melted. Serve immediately.

Make Ahead

The pimento cheese and andouille gravy can be refrigerated separately for up to 3 days.

Suggested Pairing

Refreshing, slightly bitter German pilsner.

Grilled Oranges - had this today and it's fantastic
With chicken, with duck, with salad, with anything - it complements any dish
throw some ginger or whatever you want. the recipe is only a guideline.

Grilled Oranges Recipe

Grilled oranges are simple and inexpensive to make, yet the flavor is rich and delicious.

They can be used as a side dish, garnish or even a light dessert. I prefer them cooked on a freshly cleaned grill as to keep the distinct contrast of the citrus and sweet. If you prefer though, you can cook them after you’ve grilled a flavorful meat and they will take on a light smoky flavor.

Also works with peaches.

There are a lot of different kinds of curry. Mostly Red/Yellow/Green. What kind of curry are you dealing with?

Thanks for that @240B ... That seems more what I was expecting, this stuff I have here has no chili zest to it... And maybe it is coriander that I am mistaking for the nutmeggy smell....

A want something pretty hot ... er that's what I was expecting. Maybe this gets hotter than I know, once it is added into something, but just on the tongue, no real heat at all.

Huh. Dunno.

I found a fantastic chicken salad recipe and used it to make sandwiches for my club's last meeting.

Added to the cooked, shredded/chopped chicken were some sliced strawberries, sliced/chopped seedless grapes (depending on size), and small dice celery. The dressing was what made it, though: equal parts sour cream and mayonnaise, with garlic powder, s&p, a little lemon juice and chopped fresh basil. I didn't have fresh basil, so I used the squeezable pesto-like stuff from Aldi. Wow, was it good.

My brother makes an amazing chicken salad.

With dried cranberries, slivered almonds and finely chopped celery...mixed with Duke's Mayo.

Ooh! The strawberries are weird... Unexpected. I will try that.

When I was laid up last summer, I practically lived on my daughter's chicken salad. I find the stuff to be addictive  happy77

I love chicken salad; oddly the best chicken salad I've had lately has been hospital chicken salad. I am serious. Even when I'm not the patient, I eat my husband's chicken salad.

I'll have to give this recipe at try. It sounds pretty darn good.

I loved my Mom's Hamburger/Bean Dish. (Among other things)

Saute one onion with 2 bacon slices chopped small.
Add and brown 1 lb ground beef.
Add
2 1lb cans pork&beans
½ C molasses
½ C catsup
½ t dry mustard
salt
Worchestersire sauce

Mix and pour in casserole dish
Bake @ 375  for ½ hr

I also loved her sauteed  yellow squash and onions.  We had this all the time. I always grew yellow crookneck squash in the back yard.
