Notes

  • Beware of the salt content on most Cajun seasonings. The lead ingredient on the label is typically salt. Look for a seasoning that doesn’t lead with this ingredient. You should be in control of the salt content of your food, not your seasoning. Purchase my Cajun Seasoning here.
  • Mix it up by substituting crab or lobster for the crawfish in this recipe.
