Acadian Alligator Sauce Piquant
Roux freezes well, and no respectable Cajun household would be without a good supply. When you prepare roux, make a little extra; freeze it in one cup containers. Variations: Substitute vegetable oil for lard, if desired. However, the taste of the finished dish will not be as good as the one prepared with a lard based roux. Substitute another fat, such as rendered duck fat or a combination of duck fat and lard.
