How to Peel a Crawfish Correctly

Here's how you could make it work quickly on the shell and get those tasty morsels ;).

  1. Grasp and hold crawfish on both sides of the tail joint, your thumbs on one side of the shell and your index fingers on the other.
  2. Snap the head away from the tail with a twisting motion.
  3. Peel away the shell using your thumbs from the widest part of the tail, pulling back from the center, just like when you peel a shrimp.
  4. Gently tug out the tender meat by holding the tip of the tail.
