“Boulettes is French for 'little balls.' These combine the naturally sweet taste of crawfish tails with the Cajun 'Trinity' of onions, bell peppers, and celery, with an extra kick from the Cajun seasoning. They are deep fried until golden brown and delicious. You will love these!” - by Chef Bayou
Original recipe yields 36 boulettes
- Place the crawfish tails, chopped onion, bell pepper, celery, garlic, stale bread, and egg into the bowl of a food processor. Add the salt, black pepper, and 2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning. Cover and pulse until the crayfish mixture is finely chopped. Scrape into a bowl and fold in the parsley and green onions. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
- Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk the bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning together in a bowl; set aside.
- Form the crawfish mixture into 1 tablespoon-size balls and roll in the bread crumbs. Cook in batches in the hot oil until the balls turn golden brown and begin to float, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and serve hot.

"Used leftover crawfish from a boil so adjusted seasoning, next time I make these I may leave some of the crawfish just coarsely chopped and add to the mixture after blended to add a little texture. Th..." See moreanks for the recipe."
"Made these for the first time ever today. I had my first crawfish boulette last week at a little restaurant in Lafayette(yeah, don't know how I ever missed these) and have been dying to make them eve..." See morer since. Needless to say, myself and better half are absolutely NOT DISSAPPOINTED!! Easy to assemble and quick to cook. Could not ask for a better recipe. I did do as the other review suggested and left a few crawfish whole for texture. Great idea. Other than that, I followed as written. I can't wait to make these again for my entire family! Thank you submitter!! P.S. Food processor is absolutely necessary. Glad I bought one especially for this!"
