i bought some crawfish tails when Fabian's seafood truck came to town. I threw them in the freezer... any ideas what to do with then. tyia
Funny thing is that none of those dishes need very much crawfish, so you could probably do ALL of them assuming you have a pound or more.
Crawfish Pie is a real southern dish. Here is Emeril's recipe.
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped, seeded, and peeled tomatoes, or 1/2 cup chopped canned tomatoes
1 pound crawfish tails
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup water
1/2 recipe Basic Savory Pie Crust
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, celery, salt, cayenne, and black pepper. Saute for about 8 minutes, or until golden and wilted. Add the tomatoes and cook for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the crawfish tails and parsley. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Dissolve the flour in the water and add to the pan. Stir for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat. Let cool for at least 30 minutes. Place the crust in the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan and crimp the edges. Pour the crawfish mixture into the pie crust. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the edges of the pie crust are golden. Cool for several minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.

Now I got that out of my system, how about crawfish po' boys?
Fabian is due here on Tues and his e-mail said it is the end of the crawfish season. I definitely will get some more. I make crawfish pie. It is a creamy concoction that gets sandwiched and some on the of squares of puff pastry. I use DuFour, it is all butter.
2 weeks ago when Steve Fabian was here we got there too late to get shrimp. I am definitely going to stock up. I know he goes to China for a visit in the summer.
