Tips for Crawfish “First Timers”

While crawfish boils are a summer staple in this part of the country, some may not be familiar with the little mudbug and how to eat them.

The crawfish is a freshwater crustacean that resembles a small lobster. The southeastern area of the United States holds the greatest diversity of crawfish species. Louisiana is especially known for their crawfish and it is the state’s official crustacean.

If this crawfish boil marks your first occasion to enjoy the spicy delicacy, here’s a quick primer on how to eat them courtesy of

  • Grab the crawfish by the head with one hand and by the tail with the other hand.
  • Twist and separate the head from the tail.
  • If you like spicy, then suck the head to get a quick “heat” injection.
  • Pull the first two rings of the shell off.
  • Pinch the end of the tail and pull the meat from the shell.
  • Enjoy!
