Crawfish Soup

Debbie W


This is for everyone that has crawfish boils and wants a new idea of what to do with leftover crawfish and all the extras. I always did etoufees with the leftover crawfish but it never solved the problem of what to do with the corn , potatoes, onions..and whatever else you threw in the boil. I know when we boil we always throw in all kinds of stuff!! You shouldnt need much seasoning for this if the stuff from your boil is seasoned well.

Note..we love throwing stuff in our seasoned water after we are done cooking the crawfish. Our favorite is to score a ham real good and let it sit in the hot water for fifteen or so min...yummmmm!!
