REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

If you don't mind a few calories, this recipe is perfect as is. You can, however, lower the fat by using half the butter, fat-free half and half and a cornstarch slurry to thicken it. The Cajun seasoning you chose will determine the overall flavor/saltiness so chose a good quality, flavorful brand.

This is it. Jazz Fest on your table - for less than $5 a very small serving.

Wow! This recipe is wonderful. I had a opportunity to try crawfish monica at a wedding reception. I was thrilled to diplicate this dish at home. I may try to reduce the amount of fat next time. It is very rich. My family loved it.

Love this recipe!! I did add a chopped white onion to butter and sauteed until tender then followed the recipe otherwise. Tastes just like Jazz Fest crawfish monica! Kids, neighbors, everyone loved it!
