Crawfish Jambalaya 1

1 lb or 2-1/2 cups crawfish tails
1-1/4 cups rice, uncooked (long grain)
1 tsp flour
2 tbs salad oil
1 cup onion, chopped fine
1/2 cup parsley (2 tsp dehydrated)
1/2 cup green onion tops, chopped fine
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup crawfish fat (optional)
1-1/2 cups water
2-1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper

Brown flour in oil to a golden brown. Add onions. Stir constantly until onions are almost cooked. Add one and a half cups cold water and simmer one half hour. Add crawfish tails and fat. Cook until crawfish tails turn pink. Add about two cups water and bring to a boil. When water is rapidly boiling, add remainder of ingredients. Stir to blend and cook on low heat covered for about 1/2 hour or until rice is tender. Five minutes before serving, use a two-prong fork to fluff up jambalaya so that rice will have a tendency to fall apart.
