Crawfish Thermidor Reviews

  • Thank goodness for this recipe I wanted to make a Seafood Thermidor and was having one heck of a time finding any recipe at all. I served this to a bit of a crowd so I doubled everything. Instead of the crawfish, I used 1 pound of crabmeat, and about 1/2 pound each of bay scallops and cooked shrimp. I used 1/2 the amount of red pepper flakes, since some of my guests do not like too much spice. For the wine, I used a bit of sherry and white wine for the balance. Delicious Thanks Kathleen, you are a life saver

  • I was barely able to get this into the oven--I kept eating the sauce straight from the skillet

  • I made Lobster Thermidor and it was the BEST ever. I have had lobster thermidor in the caribbean and its always been my favorite. Having the lobster with just butter just never seemed good enough. I was happy to come across this recipe. I made it and my family loved it. My fiance never eats seafood and he tried it and he LOVED it. This recipe rocks. You will not regret making this.

  • This was a pretty good recipe but I thought it was a tad bland, so my wife and I put a little spin on it ,after everything was in the skillet we added a couple of teaspoons of minced garlic 2 teaspoons of onion powder and a teaspoon of lemon pepper put the mixture in the ramikens and baked it for 15 min, while it was cooking we boiled pasta drained it and then made a picatta sauce out of 1/4 pound of butter 2 tbl spoons lemon juice and capers (to your taste) put that on the pasta and served it with the thermadore it was awsome, especially mixed together

  • I changed this recipe to Lobster thermidor and it was great. Ive been looking for this flavor for 30 years, ever since I had it in California. Its the best.

  • Delicious I was looking for a sauce for some Orange Roughy I had and used this recipe. I served it over rice. Definitely a keeper - my husband asked me save this recipe.

  • Excellent dishTaste- salty; somewhat sourTexture- creamy liquid, tender solid, soft meatAppearance- milkish-white, sticky liquidSuggestions for changes- 100mL of cornstarch to add in step 3

  • Yesterday I bought a lb. of cooked crawfish because it was 2.99 as opposed to 1 lb. of shrimp for 4.99. I knew Id find a recipe from this site. I didnt know the cooked crawfish had to peeled which revealed very little meat. Although I didnt have a ramekin, I just kept adding the ingredients in a large skillet to make a crawfish sauce. It has a mild spicy taste. I served it over brown rice (it looks better than white rice since the sauce is white). I saved a whole crawfish to put on the dinner plate for decor.

  • Best Thermidor Ive ever had even my picky eaters gobble this up

  • Pretty good I used Chicken Broth instead of White Wine and I used .75lb of Crawfish and .75lb of Turkey Kielbasa without changing anything else and I think the Kielbasas really added to it

  • I made this and mixed in cooked rice just before baking. it was fantastic. I did add a Tabasco pepper, thyme, basil, sage, and oregano to the sauce. Fantastic

  • Followed recipe. Bland. Not a single one of four at my dinner table liked this.

  • This is decadent The sauce is amazing, so thick and rich. I cant get crawfish where I live so I went with a combo of shrimp, bay scallops and the meat from one crab claw. I did cut the portions back to two, wish that I hadnt. In step two I added the shells from the shrimp, the shells add a lot of flavour, and removed them before adding starting step 3. I added the raw scallops and cooked crab just before putting this in the oven. I wont make this often but I will make it again Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

  • This dish was easy to prepare and let the crawfish be the star as it should. I did not find this recipe bland whatsoever. The flavors were good and this is one I will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing
