GoNOLA Recipes At Home: Muriel’s Crawfish or Shrimp and Goat Cheese Crepes

If you can’t make it to New Orleans for French Quarter Festival this year, you can still enjoy the food with this recipe for Muriel’s shrimp or crawfish crepes!

French Quarter Festival is known for many things and food is most certainly one of them. Since I can’t write a recipe for every dish I love at the festival, I narrowed it down to one – Muriel’s crawfish or shrimp and goat cheese crepes. Generously filled with delicious cheese, onion, and garlic, this concoction is sheer genius. And as if the stuffing wasn’t enough, there is then a creamy sauce with tender shrimp or crawfish poured over the top. Pure perfection, I tell you. So if you’re not making it down for French Quarter Fest this year, don’t fret. I’ve got you covered! Just grab an Abita beer, whip up these bad boys and turn on your favorite Irma Thomas song. You can even go outside, coat on some sunscreen, wear your favorite festin’ hat and sprawl out in your prized lawn chair. At least I sure would. Enjoy!
