Intro: Crawdad Appetizer
Have you ever had crawdad in a big bowl? well if you want the culinary perfection of that this is the dish for you!
"crawdad" is what I call crayfish, crawfish, mudbugs, freshwater lobsters or any other name
Step 1: Photo Contest!
get the profile pic of one of the instructables staff or a significant instructables member and put it on the crawdad
you could win a 3 month instructables PRO membership!
Step 2: Catch a Crawdad!
catch a crawdad in a creek near you!
Step 3: Ingredients
- two or three crawdads
- lots of spices
- a knife
- a pot of water
Step 4: Kill the Crawdad
since we aren't boiling the crawdads whole we need to kill the crawdads. just a swift chop of the head should do it but it still will move a bit.
Step 5: Cut Off Its Tail and Claws
cut off the back of the crawdad or its "tail" then cut off its claws
Step 6: Take Off Its Exoskeleton
Step 7: Boil Water and Cook Meat
get a pot of water and get it boiling (it's not boiling in the picture) then put the meat in
Leave it in for 4-5 minutes
Step 8: Spices!
get a whole bunch of spices and put it in the water, I used garlic powder, lots of salt, chile powder and chives (chives not recommended)
Step 9: Presentation!
get a plate a piece and put the boiled meat on it and add a piece of wild spearmint. (also smear some bbq suace on the plate)
