southern for crayfish, or crawfish. I grew up calling 'em crawdads, 'cept when we would go to Naw'lins. Then it's usually Crawfish or Mudbugs.

At the risk of sounding like Bubba, rattling off shrimp recipes, all the best foods in Cajunland are made with crawfish. Ranked in order of my favorites:

Crawfish Boudin.

Pistolettes. (A thick version of étouffée cooked into sweet bread, often fried like a jelly doughnut. Amaaaazing!)

Crawfish Étouffée.

Crawfish Po-Boys.

Jambalaya.

Crawfish Bisque. (Crab is pretty good, too.)

Crawfish Filé Gumbo. (Usually has other meats, too... but crawfish are a must!)

Boiled Crawfish (Must be done in traditional Louisiana style... this is usually messed up badly by people north of Interstate 10... if they don't warn you "Don't eat the dead ones!"** when serving, don't eat any of it.)

Crawfish Pie.

Crawfish Beignets.

Crawfish Ya-Ya Remoulade.

Crawfish Cornbread. (Especially sweet "hot water" cornbread... mmmm, good!)

Maque Choux. (A Creole dish that we sometimes also make... crawfish not required, but highly recommended!)

** Note: because crawfish are boiled alive, they curl up tightly in pain as they die. If the crawfish was already dead when it went into the pot, it will stay "relaxed", indicating that the thing was probably full of dangerous bacteria that would not be entirely wiped out by the boiling process, and will make you very ill. Thus, "Don't eat the dead ones!" is a traditional Cajun warning when serving a plate, at least to neophytes. This has nothing to do with whether or not the crawfish boil was done in true Cajun style, but it's a good clue that they don't know what they're doing if they don't.

Edit to Add Post-Script: I knew what "crawdad" meant, TOC and TD1... I was just being sardonic.

Great. Another guy who loves eating crawdads. Dodgy

I'm from Louisiana, and I can't stand the fuckers. If I wanted to taste mud, I can eat mud without spending an outrageous price.

If you are A) tasting mud, or B) paying an "outrageous price", then you are not eating Cajun food... you are dining at one of the many Louisiana establishments put up by non-Cajuns in order to take advantage of people who don't know the difference. Seriously, they're everywhere, nowadays, sadly enough. Sad

They taste a bit like a cross between shrimp and lobster. They're awesome.

Many people can't stand eating them just boiled, and I can understand that, for the "ewww" factor of having to rip them open and eat them that way... but in the various dishes, they're everything that's awesome about shrimp, but with a bit more of a lobster flavor.

I was heartbroken when I moved out of south Louisiana and into the cities and northern half of the state, when I tried what they called "Cajun food". The stuff in Ruston and Monroe, in particular, was awful. Blech!

Just being from Louisiana doesn't mean you've had proper Cajun food, please believe me!!

I kind of figured, but I'm never sure with you so I went with the safe and informative route. Smile
