“One of my favorite crawfish recipes given to my by my cousin Joy. It makes A LOT, but can easily be cut in half or even frozen. This recipe calls for "Crawfish Tails". If you can, please buy LOUISIANA crawfish tails. If not available, then 3 lbs of shrimp may be substituted. Support your local fishermen.”
