Crawfish Beignets

crawfish beignets
Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 10 min Total Time: 20 mins
Servings 8
  • 12 ounces crawfish tails
  • 2 cans biscuit dough
  • 1/2 cups green onions (chopped)
  • 1 cup white sharp cheddar (freshly grated)
  • 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 cups mayo
  • Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (to taste)
  • Finely grated parmesan cheese (garnish)
  • cayenne pepper, for garnish (optional)
  • oil for frying
  1. Add crawfish tails, green onions, mayo, and both cheeses to a bowl. Gently combine all ingredients together with a spoon.  Season crawfish mixture with Tony Chachere’s Seasoning and stir until combined.

  2. Flatten out each biscuit with hands or a rolling pin until they are rectangular in shape. Place a tablespoon of the crawfish mixture in the center of the flatten biscuit. Use your hands to close all sides of dough over the crawfish mix, and seal all creases. 

  3. Heat oil to 375 in a large heavy pot and add 4 beignets at a time. Fry until golden brown on all sides. Set aside once all beignets are fried. 

  4. Combine parmesan cheese and cayenne pepper, and sprinkle over the finished beignets.

I’m a homegrown food lover, whom influenced by my mama and MoMo, grew into a self-taught foodmaker. Outside of my day job in tech,, I enjoy developing Cajun/Creole and Asian Fusion recipes, and taking pretty, mouth-watering photos of the food I make. When not in the kitchen, find me binge watching a true crime docuseries or collecting passport stamps across the globe!
