Grab the head, twist it, and then suck…..the meat out of the crawfish.
What else would I be talking about?!?!?!
Recently I had the pleasure of heading south of the Mason-Dixon Line and ventured to the wonderful states of Lousiana and Mississippi and everytime I leave New England, I’m always amazed at the little differences.
I go to Cumberland Farms, you go to Wa-Wa. I buy liquor at the package store, you buy it at a gas station etc. etc. but everytime I go somewhere new I always like to try local grub and drink.
I would not consider myself a seafood fan, fish is meh, lobster is okay, but I don’t go out of my way to eat it. However, while in Nola (that’s what us cool folks call New Orleans) I tried Seafood Gumbo, as well as some delicious Mudbugs.
And they were delicious, the gumbo was spicy, and a flavor explosion. And crawfish were delectably seasoned with lemon and spices fresh out of the pot.
The point of all of this, is step out of your comfort zone, and try something new. Just because you don’t like something one way doesn’t mean you won’t like it another.
And remember, don’t forget to twist the head and suck……crawfish that is 😉.
