My mother gave this recipe to me in the 1980's.I have served this at all most ever Christmas Party ,since then .These are quick and so eazy.You can use shrimp,but I like the Crawfish better.All Wal-Marts carry them in the seafoof section,some times they are frozen.Most time they are near the Jars of oyster's.
