Pappadeaux Shrimp and Crawfish Fondeaux - LC Recipe?

Anyone have a LC version of this awesome dish?
Ate there for the first time today and had a few spoons. Didn't want to have too much of it since I wasn't sure of the carb count.

Also the dish I had for lunch was deelish! Kudos to them for having spaghetti squash on the menu. I had the Tilapia Lafayette and it honestly was the best LC dish I've had eating out. Grilled Tilapia topped with lump crabmeat and shrimp,tomato,caperss, and basil in buerre blanc sauce served with spaghetti squah. My appetizer was their New Orleans Campechana. Lovely shrimp,chunky avocado & pico de gallo in spicy cocktail sauce. ( Very little cocktail sauce, just enough to add a bit of kick to it) If you like seafood, this place is low carb friendly. They have a bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp dish - stuffed with monterey jack cheese and jalapenos that would be ideal for low carbers. Worth checking if there is a location in your town.

But anyoo, that Fondeaux was deelish,but I need a LC version

Googling I found this. Seems like you could just sub in crawfish for the oysters and make a low-carb garlic bread. You could thicken sauce with xanthan or gluc instead of the flour used.

I assumed that it was already pretty low carb. Last time I ate there I ordered some sort of fish and an order of the Fondeaux and I smothered my fish with it. Boy, was that yummy. I also found a copycat recipe online but never tried making it. Too many expensive ingredients. For me it's one of those dishes that I'll just enjoy out and not attempt to make at home.
