Crawfish, Andouille, and Corn Chowder

Raven Higheagle


I love to cook with crawfish, but they’re definitely an acquired taste. But unless you live in Louisiana, or Texas live crawfish are hard to come by. But frozen 1-pound bags of crawfish tails can be found in some supermarkets.
The frozen crawfish meat is great for recipes like Crawfish, Andouille, and Corn Chowder. Just put the bag in the refrigerator in the morning. They will be mostly defrosted by evening.
I just dump the crawfish directly into the pot juices and all, because the juices have all the flavor. They’re precooked, so you really just need to warm them.
