Crawfish, A Louisiana Delicacy

Crayfish are freshwater crustaceans resembling small lobsters. In some parts of the United States, they are also known as crawfish, craydids, crawdaddies, crawdads, freshwater lobsters, mountain lobsters, mudbugs, or yabbies. 

Does crawfish taste like lobster?

What Does Crawfish Taste Like? Crawfish meat tastes similar to a combination of lobster, crab and shrimp, with less salinity and more sweetness. Traditionally prepared crawfish often includes Cajun seasoning, which infuses the meat with notes of paprika, cayenne, garlic, oregano, and other ingredients.

Why are they called crawdads?

“Crawdad,” M-W helpfully explained, “is the synonym of the words crawfish and crayfish that is used chiefly west of the Appalachians to mean the aquatic animal that looks like a small lobster and lives in rivers and streams.” In our experience, they are also called “crawdaddies,” a diminutive.

How much crawfish per person?

A good rule of thumb is to purchase 3 to 4 pounds of live crawfish per person at a crawfish boil.
