Crazy Easy Crawfish Etouffee

Heather McDaniel


This was a recipe shared w/ me by my mother. I loved it when she made this when I was growing up, and was shocked to see how simple it was. You can add whatever you like to the recipe, it's very versatile. Saute any added veggies in the melted butter @ the beginning of recipe.
