      if your crawfish tails are whole, or chopped large, then be careful not to over cook or the crawfish tails will tighten up like a rubber band. we've always chopped the tails up chunky? but not ground..

      this recipe seems to be missing the tabasco.
      the recipe my gramma gave me, the family one, has tony's hot seasoning, tony's makes regular, thena less salt one, and then a tony's hot. more spice less salt. this is the one we've adjusted too. use tony's hot instead of regular and the cayenne. needs a dash of salt to bring out the flavour.

      we've always made a remoulade sauce, to dip or smear on top.
      these freeze pretty well as well.
      I just hold on tighter, to a hand that's stronger...he knows my every thought, he clears my weary heart, and hold's on tighter...
