Re-cover it with the foil and return your pan to oven for an additional seven to ten minutes if you are serving it immediately. If your jambalaya will be reheated and served at a different time, then skip this step. Lastly simply serve and enjoy!

Crawfish Monica


Crawfish Monica


1lb of linguine or fettucine
2Tbsp of olive oil
6Tbsp of unsalted butter
1cup of yellow onions (chopped)
2Tbsp of minced garlic
2tsp of Essence**
1/2tsp of  salt
1/4tsp of cayenne
1/4cup of dry white wine
2cups of heavy cream
1Tbsp of fresh lemon juice
1lb of crawfish tails*
1/2cup of green onions (chopped)
1/2cup of fresh chopped parsley leaves

Cook your pasta in a large pot with boiling salted water until al dente (for about 8mins). Drain, and reserve 1/4cup of your cooking liquid. Return the pasta to the pot and toss with olive oil and the reserved cooking liquid. Cover it to keep warm.

Get a large saute pan or a skillet, and in it, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add your onions and cook, stirring, until they’re soft ( for about 5mins). Add the garlic, salt, Essence and cayenne. Then cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Next add the white wine and cook it over a high heat until nearly all evaporated. Then, add the lemon juice and cream. Cook that while stirring occasionally, until it is slightly reduced. Add your crawfish tails and cook them, stirring, till warmed through. Add the onions and your parsley and cook that for about 1 minute. Add your cooked pasta and toss it to coat with the sauce. Then, cook until your pasta is warmed through (for about 1 minute). Remove from heat and add 1/2cup of the cheese.

Put it into a serving bowl and top with the remaining 1/2cup of cheese and serve.

*Peeled medium shrimp can be substituted, but the cooking time must be increased to allow thorough cooking.

2 1/2Tbsp paprika
2Tbsp salt
2Tbsp garlic powder
1Tbsp black pepper
1Tbsp onion powder

Crawfish Ravioli Seafood Recipe


This recipe is a great Cajun classic! If you love Italian food with a Cajun flare then THIS is what you are looking for! Pair it with our Easy Mardi Gras King Cake Knots Recipe for a full on Louisiana inspired feast! Make sure to keep checking back for more recipes and updates!


Crawfish Ravioli Seafood Recipe


This seafood recipe is one of my favorites! It is a flavorful dish that marries my two most favorite cuisines, Cajun and Italian. Living here in Louisiana, the crawfish are plentiful and always anticipated during fishing season. It is our favorite time of year when we get to whip up these crawfish seafood recipes in all sorts of variety! This is definitely one that will have you wishing crawfish were in season all year round!


Crawfish Ravioli




















Total Time: 45 min.


1/4cup margarine or 1/2 a stick of butter
1cup to 1 1/2cups of heavy whipping cream
1 sm yellow onion
1/2 of a large bell pepper
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 green onion chopped coarsely
Season to taste
Dash of nutmeg
1lb of cleaned crawfish tails
1 box breaded cheese ravioli (usually in the frozen food section) or 1 pack of fresh cheese ravioli
Parmesan cheese for garnish


Begin by preheat oven to the temperature marked on the breaded ravioli package. -OR- If you’re using fresh ravioli, bring salted water to a boil in a pot.
In a heavy bottom saucepan, melt your butter or margarine over a med heat. Add your bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Saute’ until the onions are clear in color. Add the crawfish tails and stir. Saute’ for approx 3-5min until tails begin to curl. Add your heavy whipping cream, seasoning and the nutmeg. Stir. Allow mixture to simmer for 10min over low to medium heat. While that simmers, boil fresh ravioli, or bake your breaded ravioli according to package directions.

If sauce seems to be too thin, you can use flour, or as a last resort, corn starch to thicken it up. The sauce should be thick in consistency similar to an Alfredo sauce.
Once the ravioli is ready to plate, check for consistency and seasoning one last time. (Remember not to exceed 15min crawfish cooking time. This may cause it to become tough.) Plate your ravioli in stacked circular pattern, ladeling crawfish cream sauce over ravioli. Garnish with chopped the green onion and parmesean cheese.

Sides recommended are garlic bread or maybe some homemade rolls. You may also try serving a green salad with a sweet onion dressing or vinegrette.
