    What do you have to do in this freaking state to get crawfish tails to cook with ? LOL. I have called 20 stores in a 60 mile radius this morning, and nobody carries them anymore. Anyone have any suggestions? Meijer, Kroger, etc. don't carry them.

    I saw some already cooked at either super walmart or giant eagle a cople of weeks ago
     

  3. Get a sein and hit the local creek. I have done this before and had all the crawdad you could ever want. Or you can set crawdad traps in the creek and pick them up the next morning. If you want to buy them you can get them from www.zatarains.com

    Just the tails......shelled and de-veined....or the whole crawfish? I don't want the whole thing :) Hate paying for pieces and parts I'm not going to use. Make that 25 stores now.
     
  5. West Point Market in Akron has them.

    And they ship, I do believe.

    I do get my own in the warmer months, but I'm looking for some to cook with in the next day or so. LOL. Still too cold to be getting them here.

    Here is what I use when I make it. But for a large group, I double the ingredients, except the crawfish. I then add 2lbs of shrimp to the crawfish:

    2 pounds cleaned crawfish tails
    1/4 pound butter
    1 cup onion, chopped
    1/2 cup celery, chopped
    ½ cup green bell pepper, chopped
    ½ cup red bell pepper, chopped
    ½ cup tomatoes, diced
    2 tbsps garlic, diced
    2 bay leaves
    1/2 cup tomato sauce
    1 cup flour
    2 quarts crawfish stock or water
    1 ounce sherry
    1 cup green onions, chopped
    ½ cup parsley, chopped
    salt and cayenne pepper to taste
    Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce
    2 cups white rice, steamed

    METHOD:
    In a 2-gallon stock pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, bell peppers, tomatoes, garlic and bay leaves. Sauté until vegetables are wilted, approximately 3-5 minutes. Add crawfish tails and tomato sauce and blend well into mixture. Using a wire whip, blend flour into the vegetable mixture to form a white roux. Slowly add crawfish stock or water, a little at a time, until sauce consistency is achieved. Continue adding more stock as necessary to retain consistency. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce to simmer and cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sherry, green onions and parsley and cook an additional 5 minutes. Season to taste using salt and cayenne pepper. Serve over steamed white rice using a few dashes of Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce.
