Reviews for Crawfish Beignets with Cajun Dipping Sauce
"Do you have to use bread flour?"
"i have already made this recipe , and will do it again and again"
"I made these tonight and they were just missing something in the taste to me. Hubby didn't like them and I was just hmmm. I may try again with shrimp and adjust some seasonings."
"you can find frozen crawfish in the frozen seafood isle of your store, if the fresh fish area doesn't have it. no need to clean all those crawfish!"
"These were amazing. I really should have doubled the recipe, because these were gone in minutes. I used 3/4 teaspoon of horseradish in the sauce and 1/2 teaspoon of hot sauce. I used crawfish, but I think I will try them with shrimp next time as it was time consuming cleaning all those crawfish.Overall really easy recipe to make and really yummy. I wonder how these would be if I used crab or lobster?"
