Another favorite for all you cajun eaters out there. Etoufee can be made with shrimp, chicken, pork or crawfish.

Unless you've eaten crawfish before I would suggest you stick with something you've tried. Crawfish is not for just anyone.

But once you've tried them, you'll keep coming back for more.

One more thing...cayenne pepper is HOT, HOT, HOT. If you're not use to it, try just a dash and then add a little more until it reaches what you can stand.
