Easy Crawfish Spread
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
½ cup sour cream
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup celery, minced fine
½ cup green onion, sliced with tops
Cajun seasoning, to taste
½ tablespoon horseradish
½ pound crawfish, cleaned, chopped and divided
1 cup remoulade or cocktail sauce
Lemon slices and parsley for garnish
Count the first 7 ingredients and put them in your bowl and only half of the crawfish meat, repeat only half. We will share a little insider’s tip with you. Spray your hands with cooking spray before forming the cheese mixture into a ball. This helps keep the cheese from sticking to you like glue. Take both your hands and make believe you are a child again, playing with play dough and shape the mixture into a ball. Place on a garnished tray. We use swiss chard leaves. Then you are going to sprinkle the remaining crawfish, which we told you to save, on top of the cheese ball. Then, pour the cocktail sauce or remoulade all over the crawfish. We prefer the remoulade. Try out our great recipe for the remoulade. Now you are going to take those lemons and parsley and make it all pretty. Stick a serving tool in it and call it done! Serve with crackers or scoops.
What is remoulade? A remoulade is a sauce that originated in France. It is kind of like tartar sauce and is usually made by using a mayonnaise or aioli base. This yummy sauce works great on sandwiches and fried seafood.
