Crawfish Pasta With Okra

Crawfish Pasta
My oldest son took us out to dinner before he left for a job on the Princess Cruiseline as a sommelier. Needless to say, we would not see him for the next 6 months or so.

Bucket of Crawfish

We brought home half a bucket of left over crawfish, which I decided to incorporate them into a pasta dish for my youngest son before his soccer game the next day.

So here are the steps to create your own:
  • Peel off the shells and take out the meaty part of the crawfish (use shrimps or scallops or mussels if you wish)
  • In a big pot of boiling water, cook your pasta of choice until tender
  • Mince half a cooking onion
  • Mince half a tomatoes
  • Mince 2 cloves of garlic
  • Chop up some bite size okra pieces (you can replace okra with other green vegetables that you have on hand)
  • Chop up 2 stalks of celery

  • In a frying pan, cook your garlic, onion, and tomato with a bit of cooking oil. Season with salt and black pepper. 
  • After these ingredients cooked down, add your okra and celery. Season with salt and pepper
  • Add 2 tablespoons of butter to your frying pan (I used margarine)
  • Add 2 tablespoons of milk or skim milk
  • Add your crawfish pieces
  • Mix in your cooked pasta
  • Season your pasta with salt and pepper to taste
  • Stir up all your ingredients well
  • Serve with grated Parmesan cheese
Voila, you will have a delicious dish for dinner or lunch that would cost you literally pennies to make, and it taste almost like Red Lobster's famous seafood pasta.

The most important thing for me is to use what I already have in the refrigerator, and make use of left over. Registered & Protected
