Healthy Crawfish Etouffee made with crawfish tails and delicious Cajun flavors for a dish you will absolutely love and want to make again and again.

If you have ever visited Louisiana during crawfish season, you know that it is a time of year that we live for. From February to May, families and friends all over Louisiana gather for crawfish boils and to celebrate all the amaizng ways to enjoy this delicious protein. And in my opinion, one of the best is a delicious crawfish etouffee. Crawfish tails are cooked in onion, pepper, and garlic all simmered in an easy homemade roux for a dish that couldn't be more tasty.

Luckily whenever you are craving Crawfish Etouffee, you can find crawfish year round in the freezer section of many grocery stores. And if you can't, you could always make this dish with shrimp. Although it's not the classic preparation, it is still really delicious and something you will want to eat all the time.

When it comes to serving this Healthy Crawfish Etouffee, I usually opt for piling it over a pile of rice, which is how it is traditionally served. However, there are so many ways to enjoy this dish. You can serve it over pasta or spaghetti squash, pile it into a sandwich or wrap, and even make a Cajun style taco. Really there is no wrong way to eat it.
