Crawfish Boil Leftovers?

a close up of a plate of food

Executive Sous Chef James Reedy is a Cajun from South Louisiana and does 2-3 boils for this family and friends a year. These ingredients make it so all flavors are infused and no dry heat to dry anything out makes it easy to repurpose each component. 

For Sous Chef James, he uses the tails for etouffee but you can easily use them in a pasta dish like our Crawfish Kacal. With the corn, you can cut them off the cob and turn into Maque Choux, Crawfish Bisque or add to cornbread. For the potatoes, it makes a killer, spiced potato salad.
