How To Make Cajun Roux
Roux is a thickening agent used in Cajun cooking.
- 7 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup flour
- In a large cast iron skillet, heat the oil over high heat until it
begins to smoke (about 4 minutes).
- With a long handled metal whisk, gradually mix in flour, stirring
until smooth. Continue cooking, whisking constantly until roux is a dark
red brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. (Be careful not to let it scorch in the
pan or splash on your skin.) Remove from heat and use as needed.
Extra roux may be kept in the refrigerator indefinitely.
