This traditional New Orleans recipe was handed down by my mother. Made from scratch, the simplicity is what makes it delicious and a favorite in homes and restaurants. Just remember to always used Louisiana crawfish tails, NEVER Chinese crawfish!
New Orleans Style Crawfish Étouffée.The term étouffée literally means, “smothered.” It is a cooking method of cooking something smothered in a blanket of chopped vegetables over a low flame in a tightly covered pan. Use butter in lieu of oil.
