  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • pinch salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 lb. Louisiana crawfish tails cooked and peeled

  • Combine the first eight ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Fold in egg, crawfish tails, & rice. Add 1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs to tighten up the mixture. If necessary, refrigerate until mixture holds its shape (30 mins. – 1 hr).
  • Form into 8-10 patties, then gently coat all sides with remaining breadcrumbs.

  • Serve over a bed of arugula and top with a squeeze of lemon, remoulade sauce, sliced green onions & a sprinkle of cajun seasoning.
