    lolsuz's Note:

    I just invented this tonight, after getting "stuck" with a couple of pounds of crawfish from a crawfish boil. It's so good I wanted to hop around the kitchen singing. This recipe is for crawfish boil leftovers; it won't be the same otherwise. You'll need two pounds of whole crawfish plus the corn, potatoes, etc, that were boiled with them. (My two-pound package contained two short corns on the cob, four little new potatoes, and two pounds of whole crawfish.) You can use whatever proportions you like, and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.

    1. 1
      Peel the crawfish, cut the corn off the cob, and set aside with the potatoes.
    2. 2
      In a soup pot, saute the flour in butter, but do not brown it.
    3. 3
      Pour in the chicken stock all at once, stirring with a whisk until blended. Don't worry if there's a few lumps because you'll get them with a stick blender later. Bring to a simmer.
    4. 4
      Break up the potatoes with your fingers into the pot and add most of the crawfish tails and corn as well. Save a handful of crawfish and corn to add later. Bring the pot back up to a simmer.
    5. 5
      Use a stick blender to blend the soup until it is mostly smooth. BE CAREFUL not to spatter hot soup on yourself!
    6. 6
      Add the half and half and the remainder of the crawfish tails and corn. Stir well while heating for about five minutes more, then you're ready to serve.

      NUMMY! this will definitely be on my list of things to do with all that crawfish left over from a boil. I kind of eyeballed amounts, and had to add some extra seasoning, because my FIL's at the boil was a little bland, just some extra salt, pepper, and Tony Cachere's. I also didn't blend this, because my stick blender has gone to the great recycling center in the sky. It was fabulous chunky! Is it wrong that I want my DH to boil up a batch next year just so we can have this again? I think he will agree to based on the way he licked the pot clean! If only the kids would eat crawfish . . . Thanks for posting, this is such a keeper for my family!

      Oh my, oh my. That was amazing. I don't find myself with extra crawfish from a boil very often. I may have to simulate one and hope for the best.
