...........................It takes all kinds...
Very much love. What caliber do you use on charging mudbugs? Me, you ask, well .22 of course. Anything larger just isn't sporting.
Thanks, Stephen. I had a .40 and .380 but decided to take them on hand to claw. They were some of the best I've had and biggest I've seen in a restaurant.
Nice shooting. Boudin ball is some sort of sausage-stuffed deep-fried dumplingette?
Thanks, mike. Boudin (pronounced boo-dann, the last part like the name Anne) is a sausage, traditionally with pork and rice. Usually boudin is served like most as a link. In this case, they use the sausage stuffing and instead of linking it, they form it into balls. For these, it tastes like they rolled them in a cornmeal and flour mixture and deep fried them. Nice and crispy on the outside and full of tasty goodness on the inside. The large amount of rice filler keeps them light, not just a big fried ball of meat. Not that there is anything wrong with that. :)
45er, buddy - i've never had crawfish, nor a boudin ball - but seeing as i love shrimp, crab, lobster, mussels, clams, etc. - i am sure i would like them!!! what do you mean they were spicy? and what the heck is a boudin ball???your friend,kymber
Oh, kymber. I think you'd like them. If you like lobster, they are more closely related to them. They are usually more tender in texture like shrimp but with a flavor in the tails like lobster. The traditional method for cooking them is to boil them along with corn on the cob, potatoes and sometimes sausage. The "boil" as the spice is called tends to be spicy. Most use a mixture of dry spices and a lot of cayenne pepper. There are also liquid "boils" and they are just as spicy. The roughest part of eating crawfish isn't the heat in your mouth, but on your lips. The tails are the preferred part, but hardcore mudbug eaters also suck the juices and stuff out of the head (really the whole carapace). Many people are disgusted by the practice. :) See above for boudin ball description. I was really impressed with the flavor of these.
AAAAWWWW!!! Your drivin me crazy. I'm droolin all over the place. I could eat my weight in them. Well maybe a few pounds of them any way. The last mudbugs I had. Were frozen, and just didn't taste as good as fresh.
Sorry, Flier. Yeah, it's been a while since I've had really good ones. Most of the ones I can get are some kind of fried crawfish tail with questionable origins. I couldn't pass these up.
Oh my gosh...we are constantly eating the same kinds of foods:). Looks delic and it is definitely love!!
Sounds like you have good taste, Agirl. :)
Dood....if that ain't love, skootch over and lemme show you how its done! Man, that looks tasty!
Oh, Rabid, I tore through them with a vengeance. Luckily, I was surrounded by locals so I didn't get crazy looks as I ripped them to pieces.
Oh my gosh, I haven't had crawdads is years and years. My family used to go crawdadding and we'd have a feast. I don't know if I even remember how to eat one.
It had been a long time for me as well, Rose. It is entirely my fault since I can get them at home if I wanted. We're going to have some more before we have to leave. I believe there is a festival around where we are at and I plan on making a pig of myself. Twist the tail, pull, suck the head, pinch the tail, squeeze and pull it out. It takes some practice and I'm more than willing to put in the time. :)
