I got the idea for these watching "The Great Food Truck Race" on the Food Network. One of the teams has a staple menu item of deep fried rice balls. Well...I just happened to have some crawfish in the freezer and just happened to have some rice in the pantry and viola, "Deep Fried Hot & Spicy Crawfish Balls". 

Step 1: Ingredients You'll need

1 1/2 cups medium grain rice (Medium grain sticks better than long grain. AKA-Sushi rice)
3 eggs - separated
1/2 stick butter - melted
Small cubed or shredded cheese (Your choice)
Bread Crumbs

1 Small onion diced
12-16 oz. cleaned crawfish
1/2 pint Marinara sauce (I used my homemade.)
1 t. Oregano
1/2 t. Basil
2 T Extra Virgin Olive oil
1 T Chili Garlic sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
lol i like your profile picture :P
Oops, I forgot to comment or give the recipe for the "sauce" that you see here. It's simply a spicy mayonnaise that I make with mayo (Hellmann's/Best's of course), Sriracha, and a little lemon juice.
Oh, wow, these sound tasty. I see my family going nuts over these! :D
