If you are feeling froggy you might want to jump on this dip! We make this spread for a lot of our caterings and it is always a huge hit and makes for a wonderful presentation.
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
½-3/4 cup the sister’s remoulade or cocktail sauce
Lemon slices and parsley for garnish
Count the first 7 ingredients and put them in a medium sized bowl. Combine using your hand-dandy hand-mixer. Next, fold in half of the crawfish meat; repeat only half. We will share a little insider 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. Wrap the ball in saran wrap and pop in the fridge and let it chill for about 30 minutes or so. Place your cheese ball on a garnished tray. We use Swiss chard leaves, salad greens or kale for garnishing. Remember, it’s all about the presentation. Then, pour the remoulade sauce or cocktail sauce all over the cheese ball. We highly recommend that you make the Sisters’ remoulade sauce; it is the sho-nuff. Sprinkle the remaining crawfish on top of the cheese ball. Now, 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.
*Watching your girlish figure and need to cut back on the fat and calories? Use low-fat cream cheese, mayo and sour cream. When making the remoulade sauce, use a low fat mayo. Use celery sticks for all your dipping pleasures.
What is a remoulade sauce? It is kind of like tartar sauce but has way more flavor. It is usually made with mayonnaise or an aioli base. This yummy sauce works great on cream cheese, sandwiches, Po’ Boys and fried seafood.
