Reviews for Crawfish Fettuccine
"Good, but needed some acid to cut the creaminess."
"This is so good! Crawfish can get expensive so sometimes i use shrimp or i combine crawfish and shrimp. I've made this recipe several times and the only thing i change is i only use about 1 cup of butter."
"I live in Louisiana, and this recipe is really a "taste of home"."
"We made this for a bikers pot luck and I received great reviews. Crawfish were hard to find so we used langoustine lobster tails and it was great!"
"Awesome recipe!Tastes like a dish you would get at a fine cajun restaurant! I use 2lbs. crawfish instead of 1 1/2lbs."
"This recipe was delicious! I thought the butter was alot but the sauce ended up so thick and creamy and not overly cheesy that we though it could be served with crackers as a dip!"
