It was a crisp, warm Saturday morning, and Amy was sitting on the front porch waiting (and not patiently, either!) for the brown truck to arrive. He carried the package over and said, "Whatcha got in here? Lobsters?" She answered, "Heck no! Live crawfish! We're doing it New Orleans style today!" He replied, joking, "What time should I come back?" She chuckled, he left, and Amy got to work.
Here is how they arrive - in an unassuming little white cooler. You can only imagine the culinary delight that is inside, namely, a plastic net-style sack full of live crawfish, some freezer packs to keep them cool and alive during shipping, Louisiana Fish Fry Co. Crawfish and Crab Seasoning, and a zip bag with the invoice and directions. Not that we needed those!
Here is our process, which was for 15 pounds of live crawfish.
Step Four: Let stand for 10 minutes.
Step Five: Rinse crawfish thoroughly at least two more times.
