Louisiana Crawfish Tails the Way to Go for Cajun Crawfish Fettuccine Recipe

Now, if you think I peel crawfish to make my crawfish recipes, you don’t know me well!  I always buy Louisiana crawfish tails in the bag which are available year round.  However, as the season approaches, the prices of the tails drop which makes it more enticing to cook crawfish recipes.  My crawfish pasta recipe is an easy recipe plus healthier and better crawfish pasta for you!.

Can you Freeze Louisiana Crawfish?

Stock up on crawfish tails when they are more reasonably priced during crawfish season. You can freeze them up to a year to have crawfish to pull out for last minute delicious crawfish recipes from Crawfish Pizza to a classic Etouffee.  Now, if you aren’t in an area where crawfish is readily available, be sure to check in the freezer at your seafood market or grocery. However, check the package to make sure it says LOUISIANA crawfish tails. You can taste the difference!

  1. The written recipe is way different than the one in the video. No mozzarella cheese, evaporated vs. skim milk, and why does it say bake it??

  2. Thank you and thank you so much!!! It was an older Crawfish Fettuccine recipe that somehow got picked up and now I have corrected the recipe. Thanks for taking time to email me and also for watching the video. I hope you will try the recipe as it really is delicious. I simplified my own recipe and made a few changes. Let me know how you like it and I really appreciate you writing to me!
