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.

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”.

Or, what to do with leftovers.

A  couple of weeks ago, we were wanting some crawfish etouffee for supper. We’ve been getting our fresh Louisiana crawfish from Calvin’s Bocage Market lately but they didn’t have any this particular Saturday afternoon.

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.
