I made this recipe last night and it is absolutely wonderful! My husband loved it! I took leftovers to work today and I kept getting compliments about the smell! I've already shared the recipe with 2 people! It really is super yummy! I did it with 1 lb. crawfish and 1 lb. small shrimp. So good!

This may not be the best for the waistline, but it is super good for the soul!!! It is so easy and extraordinarily fantastic!! A must try at least once! keep it simple and if you love crawfish, its great with shrimp, alligator, and many other types of seafood. Good Luck and Bon Appetite!

I just wanted to say "Thank You, Paula!" As a child, my mother often ran me out of "her kitchen". She had to work, so most of our meals were heat n'eat. Therefore, I never had anyone who would take the time to show me how to cook or bake. I have a family of my own now, and have learned to cook thanks to you and your sons. My kids have home cooked meals & memories of homemade desserts. Those things are priceless. How do you thank someone for that. I'm not sure, but I hope a simple Thank you is enough. You are a great Mom and mentor...even to a stranger like me.

I watched this dish being prepared on tv. It looks heavenly! I just want to know if the crawfish can be substituted with lobster or shrimp & lump crabmeat?

I buy frozen crawfish tails at Publix Grocery Stores and Walmart carries them. You may ask back in the seafood dept if they can order them for you.

By Melodie Hosey on August 02, 2011


Where do you recommend buying crawfish tails? We live in Springfield, MO, and it is almost impossible to find them here. Is there a place in Savannah that Paula would recommend and would they ship them to us? I love cooking for my sweet husband and he is dying for us to try this recipe! Thank you!

Hello Paula, Unfortunately, most of the dishes used on Paula's show are items that she's found at antique stores so we're not able to pass along manufacturer or distributor information.

On a show of Paula's Best Dishes that aired the week of June 20-24, 2011 at 5 p.m. Central time, Paula served her food on the most beautiful green and white dishes and displayed a cake on a footed cake stand that looked like green leaves. I was hoping to be able to purchase these dishes somewhere and that you could give me a phone no. or website of where I could purchase them especially the cake stand. Thank you.
