Crawfish Bread is a loaf of French bread brushed with garlic butter then loaded with Louisiana crawfish tails and green onions and topped in a creamy sauce with melted fontina and provolone cheeses.
As you know, New Orleans is an amazing place to be during the spring months. You have the French Quarter Festival, and Jazz Fest. With Lent you get all of the amazing seafood specials. And of course Crawfish Season is in full swing.
With Crawfish season, which typically runs from February to May, comes all kinds of great crawfish themed events and cook-offs. One popular event takes place in Metairie at the Semolina restaurant with the return of their Crawfish Festival. It’s a 12-week celebration of limited time dishes that allow you to really enjoy Louisiana’s signature seafood.
To celebrate this great festival of food and to remind you to visit Semolina, they are allowing me to share the recipe to one of their most popular items: the Crawfish Bread. You’ll find the Crawfish Bread on the festival menu at the restaurant for only $12.50.
Semolina is only a 15 to 20 minute drive from the French Quarter if you’re staying in New Orleans. The restaurant is located at 4436 Veterans boulevard, suite 37, in the Clearview Mall in Metairie. You can hop on I-10 and takes that west to exit 226, the Clearview Parkway, then turn onto Veterans blvd.
If you have any questions or want to make a reservation, call Semolina at (504) 454-7930. Be sure to check out their website for the complete menu – which looks amazing and affordable. I want that Muffaletta Pasta for dinner!
And while you’re at the restaurant, check out the collections of t-shirts they sell. You all now how much I love restaurant t-shirt souvenirs and they have some fun ones!
