Waiting for the water to boil, Hubby added some Zatarans crawdad shrimp and crab boil seasoning.
They turn bright red when they are cooked just like crab on lobster. Well they are little freshwater lobsters arent they?
The table is all ready, the potatoes are cooked, ready to dump in the middle of the table.
This was the biggest one I could find! Look at those claws, dont they look like lobsters?
They quickly became just shells.
This is the second biggest one. 5 1/4 inchs long.
And...... drumroll please..... this is the monster crawdad, stretched out it was 6 1/4 inches long! and has huge claws, boy I wouldnt want that one to get ahold of my toe while swimming!! yikes!
The kids ate the tails, the claws and David and his brother Jesse sucked the heads, like you are supposed to LOL
mmm mmm crawdads and taters!
The kids made short work of the spread,
Anyone else cook wild crawdads? We do it every so often. The kids said they only caught them in a 20x20foot area in the river, this river is a small tributary of the Washougal river, named, The Little Washougal. If they caught that many in such a small area, there are a lot of crawdads in that river!! Hope you enjoyed our feast!
