Louisiana rates up there as one of the most interesting places I have lived in my life. The people, the places and the cooking is to die for! This is a recipe I learned to make while living there and is one of my favorites. Along with boiled crawfish, crawfish enchiladas and crawfish pie. Blackened Alligator tail isn't to shabby either!
