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.

Deanie's celebrates Mardi Gras in the Big Easy

Posted by Karen Hales on Feb 03 2016

As a local favorite, Deanie’s Seafood Restaurants love New Orleans’ culture and traditions--especially the Big Easy’s most famous celebration, Mardi Gras, and all that goes along with it. Mardi Gras, the biggest annual draw of visitors to New Orleans, falls on Tues., Feb. 9.

Carnival season begins 12 days after Christmas with the Epiphany, which marks the visit of the three Wisemen to the baby Jesus in the Christian tradition. The season continues until Mardi Gras Day or “Fat Tuesday,” the final day before Ash Wednesday and Lent begins.
