Hot, Spicy, Cajun Boiled Crawfish

How to Eat Crawfish

  1. Order three to five pounds (per person) of fresh boiled crawfish.
  2. (Optional) Put on a special bib to protect clothing. (This allows a little more freedom with the crawfish.)
  3. Take a deep breath to enjoy the fullness of the aroma.
  4. Grab the nearest crawfish off the pile.
  5. Hold the crawfish with your left hand and gently twist off the tail.
  6. Take the head and suck the hot, spicy juices out of it.
  7. For full enjoyment - take your little finger and scrape the inside of the body.
  8. Squeeze your thumb and forefinger at the sides of the top of the tail, causing the shell to break. Remove the meat and eat.
  9. Go back to step 4 and repeat as often as you like.
  10. You'll need a lot to drink so have some cold beverages handy.
  11. This is a lot of fun with friends and lively zydeco music.
