Pappadeaux: Crawfish Season!


My mom heard from her co-worker about Pappadeaux's $3.95 per pound crawfish special on Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 5 PM from now until April 27th.  It didn't take us long to plan an evening of crawfish eatin'!

We decided that eating a couple pounds of crawfish wouldn't be filling for dinner, so we ordered the crab and spinach dip and a dozen oysters with two stone crab claws. a couple of pounds of crawfish probably isn't filling, but 10 pounds for 3 people definitely is!  We were bursting from the seams after dinner.

The only bad thing I have to say about the crawfish is that we had to throw out a lot of the dead-before cooked crawfish.  You can tell by the color of the shell and the meat--blackish, thin shelled, tough meat.  You don't want to try and eat that lest it ruins your appetite.  The fresh ones are sweet and plump.
