How to Cook & Prepare Crawfish


Crawfish dishes in South Louisiana are boiled, stewed, bisque and Etouffee to name a few. See Recipes for Crawfish

Fresh crawfish are usually boiled or steamed in order to peel them. Crawfish will cook completely in about 6 minutes in boiling water and will toughen up some if overcooked.

If they died before cooking the meat will get somewhat mushy. You can tell when you pull the tail away from the body and the first piece of meat breaks off. Most of the time the crawfish tail won't be curled.
