Crawfish Maque Choux uses fresh Louisiana crawfish tails sautéed in a classic maque choux and served over a griddled grit cake with a roasted red pepper rouille. This is the perfect recipe for a Lenten dinner or a way to celebrate crawfish season at home!
Welcome to spring! This is seafood season. You have Crawfish season on one hand and you have Lent on the other. And it’s perfect for me because I love all things seafood and that makes this a great time of year to eat out for all of the seafood specials that most restaurants offer.
One spot that is celebrating seafood season with an extended special menu is Zea’s Rotisserie & Bar. They are allowing me to share their popular Crawfish Maque Choux recipe so that I will remind you to stop by and visit one of their locations and to remind you that they are celebrating the season with a great special menu. This menu started in March and continues on until May 5, 2019.
Just keep in mind that this is a limited-time menu and it’s offered at the New Orleans, Harahan, Metairie, Harvey, Kenner, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, Covington and Slidell locations. If you’re in New Orleans and staying in the French Quarter, the Zea’s location on Pontchartrain Blvd is close to a 20-minute drive. Take the I-10 west to US-61 north. Follow that until the Causeway exit, then continue to US-90 west and exit off on Pontchartrain Boulevard.
To see Zea’s full menu and to see where all of their locations are at, you can find all that information online at www.zearestaurants.com.
