Crawfish Concoction on New Potatoes

Crawfish Concoction on New Potatoes

I believe I’ve mentioned that it is crawfish season here in Louisiana, and Beryl loves those critters more than even strawberries, so she’s been cooking them up several times a week.

Crawfish Concoction

So Sunday she picks up a pound of fresh tails to cook, and I tell her I need a break from the etouffee.

Well, I was hoping for a steak with French fries, but Beryl is dead set on the crawfish, so crawfish it is.

I tell her I’d like ‘em fried up, but she’s not having any of that. So I just headed to my office to read and leave her to do whatever she is determined to do with those crawfish tails.

Well, about twenty minutes later she calls me to supper, and I go in the kitchen and what I find I can only describe as a “Crawfish Concoction”.

The Official Cajun Cooking TV Cookbook

beryl and alexI thought I might starve to death.

I had met the sweetest girl I’ve ever known, and we were about to move to Florida together. That was the good news…

The bad news was that about the only thing she could cook was frozen Eggo waffles. And she burned them sometimes.

One time she was boiling some water on the stove, forgot about it I guess, and melted an expensive stainless steel pot.

It sounded like a shotgun going off in the house when that water hit the red-hot electric coils on the stove-top and blew out.

Another time she bought some live crabs to cook up to surprise me, bless her heart. I came home to find her chasing the crabs around the kitchen with a hammer, trying to subdue them to get them in the pot.

But she was a sweet young Cajun girl, and she was determined to learn how to cook proper food for her family.

You may know someone like that…

Beryl learned how to cook over the years and makes it look easy now. (Beryl and I got married and have been together 30 years now.)

Eggplant Pasta Bake is a simple recipe (concoction) that I put together after ordering a similar appetizer every time in my favorite little Italian restaurant in Corstorphine, Edinburgh.  After work, it’s right on the main road into town and has a small car park; always a plus.

Crawfish has been on the menu every Saturday since I returned from Edinburgh, Scotland a month ago. After weeks without proper south Louisiana seafood, I have more than made up for the lack of highly seasoned and tasty red crustaceans.

I had never given any thought to cutting corn off the cob, but just about every time we had corn on the cob, Mike would reminisce about how his Grandma in Pensacola would always cut it off the cob for his Grandpa every Sunday when they had their after church dinner.
