Wow, we recently were in Phoenix and found a great New Orleans restraunt (Pappedauex?). LOVE IT. THIS IS OUTSTANDING!!!!! My family loved it my 16 year old son said to make it next time his friends come over. I had only a 1 lb bag of crayfish (and needed to double it). I doubled all the ingrediants and then added a pound of shrimp. As we like our food "spicy" I doubled the cayan and added a 1/2 a diced raw jalepeno to the veggies while sauting. This will be a new "staple" in our house (whenver I can find the crayfish). Thanks Luby

A TEN STAR recipe for sure!!!<br/>This is a fantastic recipe....it is almost idetical to my late sister's mother-in-law's recipe. Effie was Cajun and raised a large family with wonderful recipes like this. My sister sometimes "extended" the recipe with crabmeat or shrimp, and usually added a Tbls of tomato paste or ketchup to the sauce. She used Tony Chacere's seasoning (of course!!!), & hot sauce to taste. Yummmmm!
