I had a 12 oz package of crawfish, and adjusted the recipe accordingly. I found that the patties didn't want to stay together, so I think they need more binding ingredient, or just dust them with flour before starting the cooking process. Crawfish is very rich tasting, and I think you could add some other ingredients to the patties. I'd add some finely diced green onions and red bell peppers, maybe sauteed a bit beforehand to get them soft. My patties turned out a bit greasy, so I'd reduce the amount of oil that I cooked them in. The pesto/mayo sauce is excellent, and I'll use this for other things....it will be great on sandwiches. Ten stars for the sauce!!!
