How To Eat Mini Lobster (Crawfish)

When you eat a serving of crawfish, you get 30 percent of the daily value for vitamin B-12.

Cooked crawfish should be bright red in color. Cook crawfish the same way you would cook lobster, with boiling being one of the most common methods. 

How to eat? 

Step 1: 

Hold crawfish on both sides of the tail joint, your thumbs on one side of the shell and your index fingers on the other.

Step 2: Twist and Snap

With a twisting motion, snap the head away from the tail.


Step 3: Peel 

Use your thumbs to peel away the shell from the widest part of the tail, pulling back from the center, just as you would peel a shrimp.


4. Step 4: Tug 

Hold the tip of the tail and gently tug out the tender meat. Enjoy!
