How to Peel and Eat Louisiana Crawfish

Posted by Karen Hales on Feb 21 2017

It's Crawfish season in Louisiana 

Here at Deanie’s Seafood, we’ve been eating Cajun crawfish for over 50 years. The history of Louisiana crawfish is an important part of our culture, and something that we proudly treasure. With Mardi Gras in full swing, there are crawfish boils to be found in practically every neighborhood, as well as every seafood restaurant!  When peeling crawfish is something you learn from an early age, sometimes it’s hard to remember that there’s a trick to eating them.

Crawfish Have Health Benefits  

It’s crawfish season in Louisiana, which means it’s time for the traditional crawfish boil. Besides being great to eat, Louisiana’s favorite crustacean and a staple of Southern cuisine, there are some impressive health benefits of crawfish. Low in calories, Louisiana Wild crawfish are a low-fat source of protein, essential vitamins and minerals, and they have nearly half the calories of roasted, skinless chicken breast.

Crawfish look like tiny lobsters and are typically between 3 inches and 6 inches long. Crawfish inhabit freshwater lakes and streams, and the presence of crawfish indicate that the waters they are in are relatively clean, since they rarely live in waters that are polluted.
