Crawfish Po' Boy

I'm moving a week from tomorrow which means that I have to consume everything in my freezer. I haven't bought groceries in two weeks. Life is sweet. Also, I want to vow to never have so much food in my freezer again. Will I actually make this vow? No. But I want to. Anyway, it's like Christmas... or, wait a second... I move in 8 days. That's 8 days of edible presents to myself. My mother's Jewish. That means I'm Jewish. Oh. My. God. 

It's Hanukkah in July!!!!!!!!

...with the minor exception that my freezer is full of ham and bacon and shrimp and everything that is strictly forbidden. On that note, here's my Crawfish Po' Boy!

Crawfish Po' Boy

14 oz. Package of Crawfish Tails
Iceberg Lettuce
Tomato Slices
Pickle Slices
Onion Slices
Stuff to fry with.

Alright, so this is a weak explanation of my recipe, but if you've ever seen me deep fry, then you'll understand the way nothing is important. 

I made the Homemade Mayonaise that I wrote about a couple weeks ago, but added some Cayenne, Ground Sage, and Pepper to spice it up a bit for this Cajun dish. I used cheap French Bread from Wal-Mart. I saved the Egg Whites from the Mayo to give the Crawfish a quick egg wash before coating in a mixture of Flour, Cornmeal, and Cajun Seasoning. Fry the Crawfish Tails, coat the Bread with Mayo, and then fill with all the ingredients. This makes about 4-5 decent-sized sandwiches. 

On a final note, the new Batman movie premiered last night and a dozen or more people were killed along with another few dozen who were injured in a shooting during the movie in Colorado. I find myself more and more affected by things like this as I get older. I just don't understand how people can so readily take each others' lives. I wish there was some sense of community- some sense that we are in this together and that rather than waste what little we have by murdering each other we could instead work to create something better.
