So last week I got a package in the mail from my Blog Friend, and Facebook Friend Lori! She sent Normy and I some Crawfish! (Think I said that in another post)
I was SO excited, I thought about making Crawfish all day and all week!
So I didn’t know what to make with these Crawfish, so I asked the woman who sent them… Lori! She emailed me this recipe:
I asked her what this dish is called and she told me it’s Shirley’s Crawfish Étouffée. Well I don’t know Shirley. I got the recipe from Lori, so I will call it Lori’s Crawfish Étouffée!
sauté one small-ish chopped onion in butter (Lori says she loves onion…well so do I) My words of wisdom: You can never have too much garlic, or too much onion!
add 1 lb. crawfish and season with salt and pepper and two bay leaves (this is key)
That’s LOVE right there…Just look at it!
Old Bay Seasoning (yep we can get it in Colorado Lori)
This cooks quickly…doesn’t hurt it to let it sit a while sautéing…
Serve over cooked rice….
French bread for soaking up the juices!
PS…sometimes I add an extra tab or two of butter. (I added the extra tab of butter and went to the gym for 2 hours the next day)
I didn’t measure anything really, just did it by taste and it was fabulous!
Normy raved about it! He was a happy Camper!
also…this is even sooooo much better the next day…or two…
