Chef Jerry showed me how to make seafood boudin balls with shrimp and crawfish. He clearly demonstrated each step of the process. The homemade sauce was a simple sauce of mayo, sriracha and lemon juice but added a nice tang to the final dish. The boudin balls turned out a perfect golden brown and crispy when finished. He shared this was a very popular dish that he serves at festivals.
