Crawfish Monica

Crawfish Monica created by Tread

This is a Jazzfest favorite and a favorite in my house. Even my picky eater loves this one. Thanks to my dad and his cajun roots for teaching me how to make this one and many other cajun dishes. It is a great easy dish to make for the family or if your having guest over. We always double the recipe so we are sure to have plenty of left overs to snack on :)

    How much onion are you talking about? And what kind, white or green?

    This is NOT the original New Orleans Monica. Parsley is not used. Shallots are the greens in the dish and what gives it the slight oniony flavor. Also if you use crawfish that was seasoned properly when boiled you don't need artificial seasoning.
