You can call them crawfish, crayfish, mudbugs, yabbies, or even lobster, but regardless of what you call them, they are pretty freaky looking and don’t look very appealing. Growing up in Houston, Marisa has been to a lot of crawfish boils but the rest of us have never participated.
Marisa’s brother Cameron and his wife Betty were nice enough to provide us with our first crawdad experience. They were pretty good, although a little too much work for what you get. It’s always fun to try something new and now we can say we have eaten mudbugs. Is that a good thing?
