Leah's Story

This stuff will knock your socks off! I've been meaning to post this receipe for a while. It does require a bit of chopping but once that is done you just mix it all together and throw it in the oven. If you have never tried crawfish then this is a great dish to start with! I buy my crawfish tails in the freezer section. They usually come in 12-14 oz packs and 2 packs of those do the trick! You can also substitute the crawfish with shrimp or do half crawfish fish and half shrimp too. I hope y'all enjoy this yummy meal!


1 c
chopped celery
1 large
white onion, chopped
