Spice up homemade Fettuccine Alfredo by adding in tender, delicious crawfish and a healthy dash of Cajun seasoning. Perfect!
If you are like me, when it comes to seafood I will try just about anything. I am an avid lover of fish, shrimp, calamari, crab, lobster and yes.. crawfish!!
Crawfish for this Florida girl has been elusive and mostly a mystery. It wasn’t until Big Scary Mike and I went to New Orleans for our honeymoon that I first tried crawfish and ever since then I have been HOOKED. But finding crawfish locally is either really easy and I just don’t know it or very hard and that’s why I never see them.
Until….. the day I found them in my local grocery store freezer section!!! Are they fresh out of the Mississippi and ready for a low country boil? Eh.. probably not. But are they still delicious and easy to add to every dish I can imagine? That would be a BIG FAT YES!!!!
As amazing as they are, the crawfish are not the star of this dish. If you have been looking for a delicious homemade Alfredo recipe, here it is. I will admit, I am a bit snobby when it comes to any Alfredo sauce that is not being served to me in a restaurant. I am not a fan of the jarred Alfredo sauces you can buy in the store, although my husband is and is happy anytime I break one out for him. As for myself, I like as real of an Alfredo sauce as I can make and after much trial and defeat, I finally have a recipe I love.
You will be amazed at how easy it is to make homemade Alfredo sauce. And if you do not have crawfish in your area or are not a fan, this Fettuccine Alfredo recipe is perfect with grilled chicken, Cajun shrimp, crab meat… oh, goodness…. lobster (!!) or it is even perfect just as it is.
