    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    When we go to the beach, there is one resturant that we always go to for their crawfish chowder. I found this recipe online and it's a very close match. I usually leave out the optional shrimp and add in more crawfish tails.

      This turned out delicious! I made a double batch to make the effort worth my while. It certainly isn't the cheapest recipe to prepare but it certainly is worth it. The chowder tastes better as it sits in the fridge...

      This was wonderful! I really enjoyed it, it was rich and creamy and had a fine flavor. I used only crawfish, followed directions exactly. It was easy to make and I will certainly make this again and don't think I will change anything. Thank you for posting. PAC_Fall07
