Moist Cornbread Dressing with Spicy Crawfish

To best enjoy this moist, quick stovetop dressing, make it just before sitting down to the big meal. Find frozen crawfish tails in the seafood department of some larger grocery stores or in local seafood markets. We recommend using crawfish tails harvested in the United States.
