The history of the crawfish is a rich one that dates back to the 18th century when the first French-Canadian immigrants, also known as Acadians, came to Louisiana. Better known today as Cajuns, they are responsible for the singularly delicious cuisine we associate with the taste of the big easy. From Gumbo to Beignets, their culinary contributions are many, and they are in no small way responsible for the popularization of the crawfish. In an effort to fill the lobster shaped void left behind in their old Canadian diet, the Cajuns turned to a miniature version, the crawfish, creating many dishes highlighting and celebrating its terrific flavors.
Crawfish pot pie, Cajun gumbo, and the natural accompaniment to a couple of fried catfish fillets, the crawfish is delightful served in a number of ways.
