Crawfish, Crayfish, Lobster or whatever you call it where you are is divine, don't you think? Once you get past those claws! This recipe from Russ, The Domestic Man, includes rice as a thickener, if you are not into the rice you can use tapioca flour or coconut flour roux - mix the flour with some of the stock then add. Russ says to just cook it for 20 minutes if you do that. Enjoy cooking it up and if you like his recipes make sure you get his new cookbook, Paleo Takeout.
