This recipe is the perfect combination of New Orleans food combined with my southern roots cornbread recipe.
After living in the New Orleans area where crawfish is a staple, I had to learn how to combine crawfish and cornbread and make the Best Crawfish Cornbread. The seafood seasoning, Cajun seasoning, Crawfish, cheese, and corn make this cornbread an incredibly delicious combination. When baking this cornbread, the aroma reminds me of a crawfish or shrimp boil, which I enjoy. It is a great mix of my southern Alabama heritage with my experience of Louisiana cooking.
Crawfish Cornbread – Adapted from 2001 Taste of Home Annual Cookbook. The original recipe called for green pepper and jalapeno which I am sure would also be great. I added some Cajun seasoning and Seafood seasoning which is beautiful with the crawfish.
