Crawfish Etouffee

I think I’m slowly turning into a foodie.  Which is not necessarily a bad thing at all since I like to eat.  But I’m still on a weight-loss journey so I need to watch this new venture closely.  It is, or was, crawfish season down here in Georgia.  For about the last month or two I’ve had a pound of crawfish almost every weekend.  A few days ago I purchase some crawfish tail meat and as determined to do something with them besides dip them in remoulade.  And thus, my new favorite dish with my own little twist.
