Cajun Heat’s Crawfish Shuckin’ Lesson
Yet another video involving the winner of the Feast Your Eyes on This Champion. Cajun Heat week ends with Clement showing how to eat a crawdad/crawfish at his Crawfish Boil Party. I was lucky enough to attend this function, and finally got a chance to learn how to actually eat these mud bugs. The crawfish boil was delicious, but I think I will stick to the easy to eat shrimp. There really isn’t enough meat in comparison, and for me, shrimp is easier to get to. Other people had no trouble. I guess that food ain’t made for a city slicker me. 😉 I did enjoy it all despite my lost attempts to get the meat out of the shell the correct way. Hey the corn, sausage and potatoes were easier to eat, plus their was some scrumptious jambalaya. Thanks for the invite Clement and Danielle. I was so glad I made the trip out to see you. Enjoy the quick lesson…

Inspired by the crawfish boil, I made my own cheap version using the crockpot. I used no shellfish, just the stuff I love the most- cob o’ corn, hot sausage, potatoes and onions. I used some other spices, decided to experiment with Ole Ray’s rub and Butt Rub which ChileheadEd recommended to me. I wasn’t using these for anything else. The flavors came out pretty good, worthy of eating. Sean seemed to like it too. I love me cob o’ corn. :hungry:
I actually use a different technique than Clement, I seperate the head from the tail, roll my thumb down the middle of the tail to the end and pull it out of the shell with my teeth, I can actually get the tails out faster than I can chew and swallow them. I also use the back of my fingernail to scrape out the “fat” in the heads (it is a yellow substance that has a flavor remarkably similar to fresh steamed clams) Plus when they are bigger we eat the claw meat too! As soon as the Mississippi river falls 20 feet or so there will be a bumper crop of crawfish, and cheap too!
I’ll have to try that with my next sack. I’m not sure where you live but if you want good size crawfish, check out lacrawfish.com. That’s where I get all mine shipped next day for about $3.90 a pound.
Clement, I’m in Baton Rouge LA. I can get mudbugs for $1.50 a lb now, I’m betting they’ll be below $1.00 a lb before the end of the season, here and even cheaper in Natchez MS(ricefield mudbugs from central LA)
Yes Clement, Butch and I actually live in Luzianne, not just act like it on TV…lol 😉
