Crawfish Pie

Nana's crawfsih pie

Crawfish Pie is not a dessert, it is a delicious meal that is made from the best Louisiana Crawfish. The only reason it is actually called a pie is due to the fact that it is baked in a pie pan. The recipe has a cajun flavour that can be a little spicy. The recipe can be adjusted to a milder version. The below recipe was from my grandmother, it is over 50 years old. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
