While visiting friends in Louisiana, we went to a local resturaunt that served these tasty treats! As I sat there savoring them, I thought to myself, "I can make these."
The next day, I went to the store and gathered ingredients to prepare them and yes...they were a hit!
These crawfish balls are also a good appetizer and a great dish for weddings, parties, and baby showers!

If the mixture is too dry, add a small amount of water. Roll the balls into fish fry, drop into deep fryer. Cook for 6-8 minutes, or until golden brown, drain on paper towels.
