Crawfish Etouffee
Recipe By:
  • 6-8 lbs. crawfish tails
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2-16 oz. containers of pre-chopped onion mixture
  • 1 T. minced garlic
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can of celery soup
  • 1 bunch chopped green onions
  1. Melt butter in your pot. Add onions and garlic and sauté until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, empty crawfish tails into it. Season with salt, red/black pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Save the bags to get the crawfish fat residue out.
  4. Add ½ of the small can of tomato paste, ½ of the can of the two soups. Blend well into the onion mixture.
  5. Add crawfish tails and mix well.
  6. Take the crawfish bags and put about 1-2” of water in bags and shake around to get the fat residue. Pour into the pot.
  7. When all bags are done, add additional water to loosen the mixture. Do not put too much water.
  8. From this point on it only takes 15-20 minutes for the crawfish to cook over medium-low heat. Taste for seasoning.
