Recipe by Expat in Holland

My friend Karin, gave me this recipe. It is very easy to make and really yummy when you can find Holland Rivierkreeft (crawfish) in the supermarket or fish store. I have never done so, but I believe you could easily sub shrimp or lobster to the sauce, and it would be just as good.
