Crawfish Hash

Updated: Jan 4, 2020

This is a great way to use crawfish tails. This is a special that you will find as a special on many brunch menus. I can’t wait for the weekend. I will be boiling crawfish and can’t wait to create with the leftover crawfish.

2 Tablespoons extra-virgin Olive Oil

¾ cup Green Bell Pepper, diced small

¾ cup Onion, diced small

1 tablespoon Garlic, finely diced

2 tablespoons Creole Shake

1 pound Russet (Brabant) Potatoes, diced, blanched, and fried

6 ounces Louisiana Crawfish Tails, fresh

2 each Green Onion, green part only, bias cut

4 Eggs, poached

6 ounces Hollandaise Sauce, See recipe posted

Heat oil in a 10-inch sauté pan, add the bell peppers, onions, and garlic and cook until translucent. Add the Creole seasoning and fried potatoes. Let the hash cook for 1 minute and then add the crawfish and the green onions; continue to cook until the crawfish meat is hot and then place in serving bowls. Top each portion with 2 poached eggs and each egg with Hollandaise sauce.

Hollandaise Sauce

2 Egg Yolks

1 Whole Egg

2 Sticks (1/2 lb) Margarine

1 Stick (1/4lb) Butter

1 ½ teaspoon Lemon Juice

½ teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar

½ teaspoon Ground White Pepper

¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

Melt butter and margarine over medium heat. Bring to a boil,

remove from fire and allow to cool. Blend egg yolks, egg, vinegar,

cayenne, white pepper, and lemon juice. With blender on, pour melted

margarine/butter slowly into other ingredients. Blend to thick.

How to Poach Eggs

Get a medium or large pan. You want to make sure it is 4-5 inches

deep. Put in enough water to have 3 inches in the pan. Add a pinch of

Salt and 1 teaspoon White Vinegar. Bring the water to a boil. Reduce

the heat of the water so it is right on the edge of not boiling anymore.

Crack your egg into a small cup or bowl. This way, you don’t use any

broken egg yolks. Ease the egg from the cup into the water. Cook

them 2½ to 3 minutes. Remove them with a slotted spoon and let them

drain. Put the egg on paper towels and gently pat them dry.
