Cajun Finger Foods?

JungMann | | Feb 3, 2010 07:17 AM

In the middle of planning a Carnivale party, I realized the plethora of Cajun dishes I know has left me bereft of appropriate finger food ideas. I've turned shrimp etouffee into vols au vent in the past, though it was nothing to rave about. And sucking on crawdads does not translate well for an NYC audience. For this year I've come up with:

Dirty rice balls
Crawfish boulettes
Natchitoches meat pie
Crawfish pie
Deviled crab cakes
Cajun black bean dip
Muffulettas and po boys
Buttermilk fried chicken wings

Any other ideas? Being that we're in the midst of Carnivale, I am not too keen on pescatarian hors d'oeuvres, but I'm open to any other delicious suggestions.
