Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen celebrates a Louisiana tradition this fall with the return of the much anticipated of Crawfish during its 4
Annual Crawfish Festival. Catch the Cajun crustaceans while they’re hot October 22 through November 25 piled high with Cajun Fries, biscuit and Popeyes very own Creamy Horseradish Sauce for only $4.99. And, with Thanksgiving just around the corner, spice up your spread with a New-Orleans inspired menu including Popeyes Cajun Turkey and Crawfish Dressing recipe!
Popeyes crawfish are popable bites of meaty crawfish that are hand battered and breaded with special Louisiana seasonings, fried up and served with our own special Creamy Horseradish Sauce. Guests can enjoy crawfish as a meal, combo, or even a Po’Boy.
“Popeyes guests know and love us for our authentic Louisiana flavors – from spicy Bonafide® fried chicken to Red Beans and Rice – and they give
us credibility to serve up indigenous New Orleans cuisine like crawfish,” said Marianna Magee, brand marketing and innovation manager. “During the month of November, Popeyes is celebrating crawfish and serving it up in real Louisiana comfort food style.”
This year, taste crawfish like never before! Get creative with your Thanksgiving menu by adding Crawfish Dressing to your Cajun Turkey with a recipe created by Popeyes own Chef Amy Alarcon, vice president of culinary innovation.
