How to Perfectly Peel Boiled Crawfish

 

1.   Separate the tail from the body of the crawfish by gently

twisting and pulling the tail away.

2.   Remove the top section of the tail where the meat is exposed

3.   Pinch the tail at the “flipper” end, and the meat will release.

 

Tip

 

Make sure you have enough crawfish for your backyard boil (including

leftovers). Plan for about 2 pounds per guest, though some seasoned

boilers can go through up to 5 pounds in one sitting!
