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...
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!
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!
This recipe is superb. Everyone at my party loved it and wants the recipe.
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.
I made this recipe, it was the best thing i have ever tasted, i had a few friends over, and with in two hours, it was gone, i wish i would have made more..... every one wanted to know how to make it,,,,,,,, BIG HIT!!!!!!
This dip is SO awesome, my coworker made it and we devoured the whole thing it has such a delicious taste and consistency, i imagine you could use shrimp also!!!!!! FANTASTICO!
Made this for a bunch of friends. They all asked for the recipe. Very yummy.
