Crawfish tamales, ready to roll.
Man that sounds good, I would like to try that. What's the recipe lol
Sautee 1 lb crawfish tails with 1 bell pepper, 3 stalks of celery, 1 large onion, 2 cloves of garlic, with Tony's extra hot seasoning and a drop of liquid crab boil. Buy a bag of masa mix from a mexican grocery. Mix the masa the way the recipe on the bag says. Soak some corn shucks in water till soft. Spread about a 1/2 cup of masa on the shuck. Place about 1/4 cup of crawfish mix on the masa. Put a small amount of pepper jack cheese on it, then roll it up. Place the tamales in a metal collander over water with a lid and steam for 1 hour and 20 minutes. I like to season the dry masa mix that I buy just as I would fish fry. Bon Menge.
My personal masa mix : 17 ounces of corn meal. 2 tsp of baking powder. 1 tablespoon of my favorite spice mix. 1-1/2 cups of water or stock ( I like seafood stock for crawfish-beef stock for deer). Mix the wet with the dry. It will look like wet bisquit mix. Mix by hand. Add 3 cups of lard. Mix by hand. Thats my coonass masa,
When we have extra boiled crawfish we peel the tails and freeze them for later. And later they go into crawfish enchalada's. Probably the best food on the planet! Horrible for your heart but it is worth it!
If it makes you smile, it's good for your heart.
Thanks alot for the recipe. I really appreciate it and look forward to trying it in the future. I'll let you know how it goes when I make it.
