Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell peppers
  • 1 pound peeled crawfish tails
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

In a large saute pan over medium high heat, melt the butter. Add the onions, celery, and bell peppers and saute until the vegetables are wilted, about 10 to 12 minutes.
