Tradition and spending time with family take center stage in Cajun culture, and this spice-filled recipe holds special memories for the Walkers! For more Cajun recipes and traditions check out our cookbook Growing Up Cajun!
In a large stockpot, heat oil over medium heat. Add squirrel; cook until browned. Remove from pot. Add tomatoes, soup, onion, and bell pepper; cook until browned. Return squirrel to pot; continue browning. Add a little water, and continue browning until water is almost gone. Add water until it almost covers the squirrel, and cook until tender, about 2½ hours. (Younger squirrels don't take as long.)
Add green onion and parsley during the last 30 minutes of cooking. Serve over hot cooked rice!
Note: You can also brown ½ lb of sausage with the squirrel.
