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.
