One of my goals is to find all the crayfish recipes I can and list them here! If you have a good crayfish recipe, let me list it with full credit or link to you!

My own simple crayfish boil:

When I'm not cooking crayfish for someone else I make it plain, simple, and quick!
For every gallon of water:

Boil crayfish for 10 minutes then soak in the same water for 30 minutes. Sample the crayfish every now and then to check for salt content.
Shell the crayfish and pig out with garlic butter, A big wink when your crayfish traps are full or use in other dishes.
Please keep in mind I'm very good at trapping them but I don't hold a candle to my wife's shellfish boil. She is the master when it comes to the kitchen!!

Crawfish Pasta

 Serves 4 adults

 Melt butter in pot; add flour and stir constantly until you have a light to medium blonde roux.  Add onions and garlic and sauté until tender and keep stirring.

 Add the crawfish and sauté for another 2 minutes.

 Add half of the heavy cream and a couple of big pinches of the Creole seasoning to taste, continue to add the cream until your desired consistency is achieved.

 Continue to cook over medium heat for another 5-10 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Pour sauce over pasta and serve immediately with lots of French bread and maybe some nice white wine.
