OK, folks. This one has been a long time coming.Crawfish. How to peel ’em!

Pat Padley over at In Between Sundays podcast had a conversation months ago with his brother Nick, in which they asked me about the proper way to peel a crawfish.

Now, the proper way to peel a crawfish is probably a lot like the proverbial skinning a cat thing. There’s more than one way. But in this video we share our way.

Yep. The Padleys asked about this months ago (around Mardi Gras) and I am just now getting around to posting this video. Ugh.

Here, I’ll say it for you: “It’s about time!”

Sure is! And I think you are going to like it. It starts off with a little photo montage to pay respect to the red delicious creature that we so love to boil. Then you have the privilege to see my wife demonstrate the “proper” way to peel a crawfish.


Laissez les bon temps roulez!
