In the previous blog post, I mentioned about the Crawfish Boil we had recently. https://dastylishfoodie.com/2020/04/zatarains-sausage-crawfish-boil/
It’s the season of Crawfish Boils, but unfortunately with the Stay at Home orders we can’t have gatherings and enjoy with our entire families.
When we had our Crawfish boil, we ended up with a lot of leftover Crawfish. So I decided to challenge myself to see what dishes I could come up with the leftover Crawfish.
The day after our Crawfish Boil, I created a Crawfish Boil Salad. Oh my goodness. This salad was banging!
The Crawfish Salad included first the leftover items, Crawfish tails, mushrooms, and corn. The additional items included Romaine lettuce, mixed greens, yellow bell peppers, boiled eggs, edamame, shredded carrots and spicy ranch dressing. Oh my! Spicy and delicious goodness.
One day we had leftover Fried Redfish, so I created a delicious Crawfish Étouffée.
I topped the Fried Redfish with Crawfish Étouffée served over rice. WOW.
The Crawfish Boil Pasta was by far one of my favorites! The Crawfish Boil pasta included Sausage, Corn, mushrooms, garlic all from the Crawfish Boil. I sautéed the Ingredients along with some diced onions and bell peppers.
Once the items were heated all the way through. I tossed in some boiled spaghetii noodles. Finished with some fresh Parsley and Smoked Paprika.
This pasta was ON POINT! Spicy!!
The last dish I created was a Fried Crawfish Tails Sandwich. We had just enough for sandwiches for each of us. This was so easy. We simply fried the Crawfish tails. Toasted the bread, spread some of the leftover DSF Crawfish Dip, served on a bed of lettuce and topped with a few handfuls of Fried Crawfish. Served with some fresh cucumbers and tomatoes with Sour Cream and onion chips on the side.
This dishes were superb and so easy. The perfect way to avoid wasting the leftover Crawfish. I am not a big leftover Crawfish person, but these transformational dishes were so easy and perfect!
