Crawfish is basically like a tiger prawn crossed with a more solid head like a lobster but since we ate it at the start of the season they were much smaller as well. A crawfish boil is a typical Louisiana dish and is usually done in a large pot  fitted with a strainer and lots of seasonings including cayenne pepper, hot sauce, salt, lemons and bay leaves. Ears of corn, new potatoes, onions, and heads of garlic are usually included and some people will add smoked sausage links or mushrooms but ours was just pure crawfish, corn and potatoes. They are pretty fiddly to eat but the spices tasted so good!

    About the Best Bites

    Christina's mum is a chef and Ty's mum an avid fan of home cooking so its somewhat inevitable that we both grew up with a passion for food. 

    We love to eat, and think there's nothing better than finding a new delicacy, made with fresh ingredients, that we can take home to spice up our recipe book. The Best Bites will be full of the tantalising and tasty dishes we find along the way.
