Postby gimpwn » Sat Apr 13, 2013 12:13 pm

for those of you who know something about some cajun food

1 egg, beaten
1 pound chopped cooked crawfish tail meat or shrimp
3-4 green onions, chopped
...1-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/3 cup bread flour
Oil for deep-fat frying
Cajun seasoning, to taste

Cajun Sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish, optional
1/4-1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

*In a large skillet or fryer heat oil to 375 degrees or medium high.
In a large bowl, combine the egg, crawfish, onions, butter, salt and cayenne pepper. Stir in flour until blended.
When oil is hot drop Tablespoonfuls of batter, a few at a time, into oil. Fry until golden brown all around. Drain on wire rack over paper towels. Sprinkle lightly cajun seasoning on top while still hot.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish if desired and pepper sauce. Serve with Beignets.

Makes about 24 Beignets and 3/4 cup sauce
