Pasco Chamber Crawdad Boil this Saturday!
When I was a kid in Montana, we would catch crawdads in the creek (crick). Later in life I lived in New Orleans and found it so funny that they called them crawfish! And yet there are those that insist on "crayfish!" Whatever you call them, they are not very good pets like I thought when I was 12, but instead delicious!
In New Orleans they always said, "Pinch the tail and suck the head." Outsiders think this must be shellfish porn! But no. After you break that little mud bug in half, you pinch the tail and the meat pops right into your mouth. When you suck the head, it's just the flavor of the Cajun soup and spices it was boiled in. No, you don't suck out the brains!
Here's the deal from Townsquare Media sales superstar Scott Langlois...
