- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 4-quart, deep cast iron pan bring water, 1 tablespoon salt, and butter to a boil. Add the grits, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes, making sure to stir occasionally.
- Fold in remaining ingredients, cover pan, and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 20 minutes longer until the top browns. Add salt to taste. Serve.
Note: it is important to use the domestic crawfish in this recipe because of the higher fat content and overall flavor.
