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.

Enjoy Crawfish Season, It's Good for your Health!

Posted by Karen Hales on Feb 16 2017

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.

Mardi Gras Season Means crawfish, blue crab & oysters   

Winter time in this region means milder weather, Mardi Gras, and of course some of the best Louisiana seafood the gulf has to offer!  Eating local seafood in season means you’ll enjoy it at the peak of freshness.

Louisiana is the largest commercial fishery in the contiguous United States. If you’re lucky enough to live in Louisiana, you’re in close proximity to seasonal gulf fish like black drum and yellowfin tuna, as well as the best oysters and shrimp in the world.

Turn up the Grill with Easy Summer Seafood Recipes

Deanie's offers seafood recipes to add to your summer BBQ

Growing up in New Orleans means learning to love Louisiana seafood at an early age.  Practically from birth, locals enjoy gulf shrimp and fish, gulf oysters, and Louisiana crawfish and fresh crabs. The USDA’s Dietary Guidelines last year encouraged Americans to eat at least 8 ounces of seafood per week, but most are not eating that much.  It’s easy to find a restaurant serving fresh Louisiana seafood in our neck of the woods, but it’s also actually fairly simple to prepare seafood at home.  If you’re looking to introduce your family to seafood, we’ve got a few pointers.  Here are some of our favorite easy Summer Seafood grilling recipes!
