Easy Crawfish Bisque Recipe Options

This easy crawfish bisque recipe has lots of versatility to fit your family.  You can use fresh or frozen crawfish tails. Look for a package of Louisiana crawfish tails in your seafood market or freezer section.  If you aren’t from Louisiana, you might think we actually sit there and peel the crawfish to get the tail meat. Look for Louisiana crawfish tails as crawfish outside of the United States are not up to our standards!  Now, sometimes after a crawfish boil, someone helps peel extra crawfish tails for us. Those are the best!
