Cajun Seafood Lasagna Recipe


Cajun Seafood Lasagna Recipe




8 lasagna noodles (cooked)

1 pound of crawfish tails (peeled)

1 pound of small-medium shrimp (uncooked)

16 ounces of ricotta

2 cups of pepper jack (shredded)

2 cups of parmesan (shredded)

8 ounces of velveeta

1 large egg

1 large diced bell pepper

1 small diced onion

4 cloves of garlic cloves

1 small minced Jalapeno (remove the seeds)

Olive oil

1 small diced tomato


Cooking Instructions:

First you will need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, you will take a good sized skillet and saute your garlic, bell pepper, jalapeno and onion in some olive oil. Now, melt the Velveeta cheese and a half cup of the pepperjack. You will next add the tomatoes, shrimp, and crawfish and cook your shrimp until they are half way done, this prevents them over cooking when baking. Now, with an even coat of Tony’s and just a pinch of cayenne season your seafood. In a mixing bowl, fold together the ricotta, 1/2 cup of pepperjack, egg, parsley, 1 cup of parmesan, paprika, and basil. Using a 9×9 baking dish, spray it with some non stick spray like Pam. Then, spread a thin layer of the Seafood Mix across the bottom of the pan, it keeps your noodles from sticking. Add yourself a layer of noodles and spread about 1/2 of your ricotta mix onto the noodles. Then add 1/2 of  the seafood mix, making sure to spread the meat as evenly as possible. Top that with shredded pepper jack and parmesan. You will repeat those steps a second time and bake uncovered for 30min.

What You Will Need:

One loaf of refrigerated french bread dough

Three tablespoons of softened butter

One quarter cup of sugar

One tablespoon of cinnamon

One cup of some powdered sugar

Four teaspoons of milk*

Half teaspoon of vanilla

How To Bake It:

First you will need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Next, unroll your french bread dough into the shape of a large rectangle. It should come out to be about about sixteen by twelve inches. Brush over the dough lightly with some softened butter. Then mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Take your cinnamon and sugar mixture and  sprinkle it over butter.  Now cut your dough in half (lengthwise) and then cut it crosswise into some strips that should be about one and a quarter inches wide. Twist two of the stips together. You will need to tie each strip loosely into a nice knot, stretching it gently if you need to, and then place it on a baking sheet. Make sure to space them about two inches apart. Then, bake them for about twenty-five to twenty-eight minutes. Let cool. While they cool,  mix together your vanilla, powdered sugar, and milk. Now dip each knot into the icing mixture and then sprinkle on your colored sugar. Then simply serve and enjoy!



* You may choose to use more milk to get the desired consistency.

** Purple, Yellow and Green are the typical colors for the sugar used on a Mardi Gras king cake, but you may used whatever colors you prefer.

Looking For Some Real Good Seafood Recipes To Do Outside On My BBQ Pit.?

This post is a response to “Looking for some real good seafood recipes to do outside on my BBQ pit.?”. Here are a few helpful recipes for those wanting to cook outdoors. Make sure to check back for more great grilling recipes.


I’ve already checked out the food networks but still haven’t found a really good one yet. I only just heard about grilling on a plank & I’d like to try that. Live in Louisiana where things are pretty spicy so please keep that in mind.

Spicy Grilled Tuna

Spicy Grilled Tuna-Big Daddy Seafood Market

Spicy Grilled Tuna-Big Daddy Seafood Market

1/3 C. Olive oil
1 t. Salt
2 t. Cayenne pepper
1/3 C. Lemon juice – fresh
3 lg Cloves garlic, minced
3 lg Shallots, minced
2 t. Ground cumin
1 bunch Cilantro, leaves only, finely chopped
6 Pieces (6 ounces each) of tuna fillet
Vegetable oil, for greasing the grill
Lemon wedges, for garnish

In a small mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, salt, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, garlic, shallots, cumin, and about 3/4 of the cilantro (reserve the remaining cilantro for garnish).

Place the tuna fillet in a large glass or ceramic dish. Rub your fingers over the fish to check for and remove any remaining bones, and pour the marinade over the tuna. Make sure the fish are evenly coated on both sides and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator, turning once.

Brush a grill or broiler pan with vegetable oil and heat it to high heat. Grill the fillets for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until done to your liking. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and the lemon wedges.


Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

8 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
1/2 cup peanut oil
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoons green onions, chopped
3 teaspoons brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Place salmon filets in a medium, nonporous glass dish. In a separate medium bowl, combine the peanut oil, soy sauce, vinegar, green onions, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, sesame oil and salt. Whisk together well, and pour over the fish. Cover and marinate the fish in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.
Prepare an outdoor grill with coals about 5 inches from the grate, and lightly oil the grate.
Grill the fillets 5 inches from coals for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at the thickest part, or until fish just flakes with a fork. Turn over halfway through cooking.



FRESH GULF BBQ SHRIMP-Big Daddy Seafood Market

FRESH GULF BBQ SHRIMP-Big Daddy Seafood Market

4 pounds fresh head-on Louisiana shrimp (10-15 count or bigger)
1/2 pound prepared BBQ butter
1 bottle Abita Amber beer
1 Tbsp. Paul Prudhomme Shrimp Magic (or Creole seasoning)
Tabasco sauce
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Chopped parsley

Peel shrimp, leaving the heads attached, split the back 1/4 inch and remove the sand vein. Season with Shrimp Magic and reserve. In a large non-stick skillet, sauté the seasoned shrimp in about a tablespoon of butter and oil for two minutes on med-high heat. Turn and continue cooking for one minute. Add about a half a bottle of beer and reduce to 3 ounces. Lower the heat and stir in several cold 1″ chunks of BBQ butter. Continue adding the balance of the butter, stirring constantly to make the sauce a creamy consistency. Add Tabasco sauce and chopped parsley. Serve in large heated bowls with plenty of French or sourdough bread for dipping. This is also great on mashed potatoes.
