Move over crab cakes! Louisiana Crawfish adds a new slant to an old classic. Tired of burgers? Think of this as a crawfish burger and serve in a bun. Make sure and buy Louisiana crawfish tails!
Yield: 8 crawfish cakes
Serving Suggestion: Make small crawfish cakes to use as an appetizer and pop in a miniature bun for trendy sliders. Serve as a meal with steamed asparagus or a green vegetable and roll.
Terrific Tidbit: To make ahead of time, mold into patties, and refrigerate, covered, until ready to cook. For cracker crumbs, place crackers in a food processor or blender. If freezing, freeze uncooked.
Quick and easy, the Horseradish Sauce has a bite.
