Creamy Crawdad Sauce


This flavorful sauce just sings with Cajun spice and the flavor of crawdads (crawfish.) I made this recipe for my Louisiana Meat Pies recipe, but it’s amazing served as a regular dip, or as a sauce over fish.



2 TBS butter

1 TBS Cajun seasoning

1 TBS minced garlic

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped bell pepper

1 cup heavy cream

½ lb crawfish tails

½ cup cheddar cheese


In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add butter, garlic, onion, and bell pepper and cook until softened.  Add crawfish tails and cook for 2 minutes.  Add heavy cream, then reduce heat to medium.  Stirring often, cook until cream is thickening.  Add cheese and cook while stirring until cheese is melted and a thick consistency is reached.  You may add a tsp of flour if necessary to thicken.
