Ingredients

Directions

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add half of the green onions, and cook until wilted. Add the crawfish tails, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the cream cheese and mayonnaise until well blended. I like to use an electric mixer. Season with hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce until the mixture is pink in color. When the crawfish have cooled slightly, stir them and the butter into the dip along with the rest of the green onion. Mix well, cover and refrigerate overnight to properly blend the flavors.

Brought this to an office holiday party and it was a BIG hit! I liked that I could make it the night before and not worry about finding a way for it to arrive to the party "warm." I used crawfish that had been cooked and cleaned as part of the packaging process and that worked GREAT - made it even easier to make! I thought it could use a touch more hot sauce but that is more of a "taste" thing...

I cut the recipe in half & added a lot more hot sauce & worcestershire. Only I used Louisiana Hot Sauce which is one of the mildest. I managed to get most of the crawfosh out whole (leftovers from a crawfish boil) so i gave them a rough chop & only sauteed them long enough to heat them a bit & get them well-buttered. The dip was very well received but I don't know that I'll make it again using crawfish. I think I would prefer it w/ shrimp although that may be due to the fact that I had to shuck all the crawdads. LOL I jsut served it w/ saltines...thansk for the recipe KSharp01!

YUM! This turned out great. I suppose you could chop or shred the tails for a less lumpy consistency but I personally LOVE a big chunk of crawdaddy on my cracker. This is a keeper...Thanks for sharing!

This was well-received at a recent party. As others have mentioned you need a lot more hot sauce than the recipe states. I bet I put in close to 1/4 cup. I also mixed in some Old Bay and sprinkled with a little cayenne pepper for color and a little extra heat.

We are in the Midwest and crawfish isn't standard fare around here but I made this for a neighborhood party. I added quite a bit of lemon juice and garlic powder since it seemed to need "something" - maybe my store-bought frozen tails weren't the best quality too but nobody said it was good so I won't try that again.
