“An appetizing first course from the flavor center of the universe, Louisiana. Courtesy of Chef Mike Fennelly of Mike's on the Avenue, featured in The Louisiana New Garde television series. Eat these gems plain or wrapped inside a lettuce leaf with a little pasta and mint leaves. Either way, dip them in the sauce and savor. If you cannot find crawfish meat, please feel free to substitute shrimp. The nutritional numbers are slightly skewed as you won't be using the entire package of wrappers. Wrap the remaining rounds tightly and refrigerate.”
