Ok all you non-Lousiana types, look upon what we natives regard as a feast. Boiled crawfish, in all their glory. Hot, spicy, delectable, sweet, juicy. Mmmmm! I can see the cringes of the uninitiated as they consider what is a rite of passage for all in the eating of these wonderful little crustaceans - the art of "sucking the heads" and sampling the hotly peppered flavor of the spicey boil. Down home (or is that "up" from my present Florida peninsular perspective), it don't get much better than this, cher. I guaronnnnteeeee!

I have never eaten these,do they taste like crayfish/lobster? They look like prawns, yet their heads are much bigger, like that of a lobster! I am thinking mayonnaise will be a heavenly pair with these beautiful creatures...yummy!:)

I like your photo, buy . . . we tried them once in Gulfport ... but sucking the heads is tough for we northerners. ;D
Now give me a lobster and I can find lots of meat in the crevices of the head. (grin)
