The Acadians of Louisiana, also known as Cajuns, are especially innovative cooks who learned to make good use of whatever was on hand.
Crawfish balls are a favorite of Cajuns, but since these delicate little critters are not easy to come by in other parts of the country, shrimp is used in this recipe. Served hot, they're a fine first course or appetizer to enjoy with drinks. If you wish, serve with remoulade sauce. From an old newspaper clipping.
