Newbies to New Orleans often ask me to explain the proper way to eat a crawfish. They think it's a great mystery. But it's not. If you're in the Big Easy during the peak of crawfish season — which runs roughly from March until June — you're probably going to want to sample a pound or two (or three) of our little mudbugs. If you're not sure how to eat them — relax, I've got you covered. Although it's July, you can still find these red crustaceans if you search around town. I bought some during the 4th of July holiday and they were still pretty tasty. If you can't find any, get ready for next season with this handy guide on how to eat crawfish.
