Craw Fish Bisque

This is delicious!  We are treated to it once a year.  It's thick, buttery and has a little bit of a kick to it! This recipe comes from my cousin Nathan Jacobsen.  He has made this bisque for us 2 or 3 years in a row now around Thanksgiving!  Thank you for sharing your recipe Nathan!

2 lbs. chopped craw fish
1 cup chopped yellow onion
4 sticks butter
2 cups flour
4 cups chicken broth
1 bunch finely chopped green onion
8 cups half & half
4 tsp. garlic powder
4 tsp. onion powder
2-4 tsp. cayenne pepper

In a stock pot over medium high heat saute the chopped yellow onion in all the butter till soft.  Stir in flour, keep stirring for 2 mins. so that all the flour and butter are mixed well together. Stir in broth slowly.  Add a little at a time to the flour butter mixture so that it doesn't become lumpy.  Stir and let it come together for 5 mins.  Add in chopped craw fish and green onion.  Stir and let it come together for 5 mins.  Stir in half & half, 5 mins.  Stir in seasonings.  Cook all together for 20 mins., stir occasionally.  Remove from heat.  Let it stand for 5 mins and then serve.  Enjoy!
