It’s Crawfish Season, Y’all!
Crawfish season is here, and I promise, you don’t want to miss it.
It’s crawfish season, but to be honest, if I saw a crawfish in the wild (aka a swamp or muddy pond), I might get a little freaked out. Sure, I might watch it crawl around. I was a Girl Scout for a long time and have a serious appreciation for outdoorsy things. But never, even if I were starving, would my first thought be, I should pick up that crawfish, cook it, and eat it.
I know John the Baptist ate locusts and Bear Grylls has eaten all kinds of bugs, but that’s just not my style. I’m not even excited about the chocolate covered crickets at the Insectarium in New Orleans.
That said, I can look past the bug-ness of this critter to enjoy some fresh and spicy crawfish.(more…)
