One of my absolute favorite summer-time meals is a backyard shrimp boil. It’s not quite the same, but ever since experiencing a good-ole authentic crawfish boil while visiting a friend down in New Orleans back in my college days… this has been one of my favorite flavors. If crawfish were in abundance up north here, I would probably toss the shrimp aside in favor of the down and dirty flavor of crawfish.
Party Meal for the BackyardOkay… so its not really dirty, unless you count how messy you get while eating them. But the fact that so much of the flavor and seasonings are tucked inside of the crawfish shells and you basically have to suck it out, make them a bit messier and more fun to eat than shrimp. If you don’t believe me, read this article about how to eat crawfish. I kid you not.
