  1. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  3. 1 cup chopped celery
  4. 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  5. 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
  6. 1 1⁄2 cups chicken broth
  7. 1 pound frozen cooked Louisiana crawfish tail meat, thawed
  8. 3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  9. 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  10. 1⁄2 (17.3-ounce) package puff pastry (1 sheet), thawed
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add bell pepper, celery, and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Add flour, stirring to remove any lumps. Cook, stirring constantly, until vegetable mixture begins to thicken and flour turns light brown, 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Add broth and crawfish, stirring well to remove any lumps. Add Cajun seasoning and garlic salt, stirring well. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, 5 to 6 minutes. Spoon crawfish mixture into 4 (1-cup) ramekins. Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry to 1⁄4 inch thickness. Cut pastry into 4 (5-inch) squares. Place a square on top of each ramekin.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 8 to 12 minutes.
