How to Make Creole Crawfish


  1. Melt butter. Saute Onion, celery and bell pepper until tender.
  2. Add thawed crawfish tails and fat, rotel tomatoes and soup.Throw in a bay leaf or two. Heat until bubbly.
  3. Add creole seasoning and salt and pepper to your liking. (I skip the salt and pepper and add extra creole seasoning) Simmer for 20-25 minutes. Remove bay leaf.
  4. Serve with rice and fresh french bread. My hubby adds Tobasco, but only because he likes it hot.
