When in Cajun Country, Attend a Crawfish Boil

POST #    2490

The day after the wedding, Thuy's parents were nice enough to have people over to their home for a crawfish boil. Thuy's dad bought 160 pounds of crawfish and prepared them himself behind the house. He has quite the set-up back there, perfect for entertaining people.

The crawfish we had were gigantic as it's relatively late in the season and Mr. Bui actually toned down the spice on the boil this time, but it still seemed adequately hot for me.

That first picture is great. Poor little guy!

At the one crawfish boil I've gone to I asked how to eat them. "Bite off their heads and suck out the insides" was the instruction I was given.

well, it's more a twist of the head, sucking the insides of the heads are optional. and then there are a couple of ways to eat the meat in the tail. i liked the pushing against your teeth method best.
