Authentic Crawfish Etouffee

Etouffee means "smothered." Everyone in the world has crawfish. Some parts just don't know what to do with them. In Louisiana, they're raised in rice fields. Sure, you can get them from ditches, but who wants to eat crawfish from a ditch? For those of you who can't purchase crawfish in your city, here's a link to where you can order them : http://www.lacrawfish.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=LCTM
