$4.50 / lb ! ! !  Holy cow !  This must be more of the 2% inflation that the fed has been warning us about.
Boy oh boy, I sure am glad it's not 3%, I can only imagine.

Seriously though, the only time I have ever had them was in some jumbolayah (sp?).  When I ate them they tasted fishy.  Is this normal or did I get some from an old or bum batch?

What do you experienced crawdad eaters think?

Old Blue, cooked right they are delicious. Boiled IMO is the best way to eat them.

Throw them into salt water alive (flushes them out), then into fresh water to rinse, then into the boiling water they go. When the lil buggers turn orange, peel, dip into garlic butter and enjoy.

Oh Man that sounds bad LOL grin

Seems the price is being held up for an unknown reason this year and the last few years for that matter. We had the mildest winter i can remember plus we have tons of water not sure why the prices are so high. I think the suppliers are price fixing screwing the fisherman and the consumers IMO.

Technically, you're not really sucking the head of the crawfish. You suck where the rear of the thorax and tail meat union is. Its a cavity that will contain juices from the boil and some crawfish fat.

How to Eat Crawfish in New Orleans


If they're cooked right you don't even need to peel even one rung of the tail. You can just pinch the rear of the tail and with a quick suck the meat will pop right into your mouth.

Short story,

I was about 25, rolled in to Gueydan, LA for a duck dog trial. Stopped at a local store and they was all speaking French. Saturday night the town put on a crawfish boil for us, about 200 folks with music and dancing. They cooked them just like you say and like JP's picture shows; with new potatoes and corn in 30 gallon pots. They also added a 2 pounds of butter and a whole pound can full of ground cayenne pepper. Hot  evil  evil Hot, Hot, liked to peel the lips right off our faces. We also went through about 6 kegs of ice cold beer. They covered the round picknick tables in newspaper and mounded all the food up in the center. What a treat it was, and what great folks. If I hadn't already been married I would of made off with one of those French speaking cajun gals, man were they sweet.

I've been hooked on the crawfish ever since, and put on a boil most years in March. We can catch them up here, but they aren't near big enough, them Louisanna crawdads are huge, and what you have to get.
