My 3 year old daughter had a great time helping me fix this dish. I used my own basic cornbread recipe over on the breadrecipe site instead of a box of mix. Doused it in Tabasco. This one comes to the next potluck or picnic. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe. I've eaten it before and I am so happy to "have the know how now." I used the frozen crayfish tails that I bought at the local grocery store. If you don't like this either you aren't from cajun country or you did something wrong. Read More

This was OK but the cornbread mixture came out dry and crumbly. If I make it again I will add a little more liquid to the cornbread mixture. Read More

@dfwfoodie I bet you used those imported Chinese crawfish. That is a huge risk. They often are horrible and RUIN recipes! I only use Louisiana crawfish (after trying to save and getting a bad package of frozen Chinese crawfish tails). BLEGH! I haven't tried this recipe but it looks great so I am giving it a 4 just so I can warn people not to use Chinese crawfish unless that is your only choice. I am looking for a specific recipe and I am not sure if this is it. I am from Louisiana and really honestly swear that there is a difference in quality. If I were to make these I add a sprinkle of Tony's. (That goes into everything!) Tony Chachere's is as important as the Trinity in my book. (I mean the cooking Trinity (onion bell pepper celery) not the Divine one because THAT one IS SUPREME;) Read More

This was good the only thing I did was make my own cornbread mix instead of using store bought. This is because I don't like sweet cornbread. But this was delicious... Read More
