Recipe from Louisiana Cookin'

As we leave the winter weather behind and the temperature begins to rise, the crawfish craze in Louisiana begins. Crawfish season is one of the most highly anticipated times of the year in Louisiana. There's nothing quite like the spicy smell of a crawfish boil to welcome Spring. 

Although it's prime time for crawfish boils, we know that a big boil isn't always feasible. So if you're craving the taste of crawfish and want something that you can cook up right in your own kitchen, look no further. Check out this mouthwatering recipe for crawfish pie that we pinned on our Pinterest
