    Louisiana Food---Delicious and ugly

    I was cooking shrimp the other night and realized that we eat some very strange things. A pictorial of the weird and strange:

    Crawfish is probably the most tasty food to come out of the water.

    It's really expensive and a lot of work for the payoff.

    I had langostino paella the other day. They are ugly things. Highly evolved bugs, really. Gross and disgusting. But delicious.

    I like crayfish...I've only had it a few times, but they do just strike me as tiny lobsters. Oysters however...I've been eating as many oysters as I can for the last three years and I've just scratched the surface when it comes to the variety in size, taste, and texture. How amazing was it that at some point a person thought "Let me smash open this rock and suck out what's inside"?

    Do you know the legend of the crawfish? When the Acadians left maritime Canada to walk to Louisiana, becoming cajun on the way, lobster went with them. The walk took so long though, that the lobsters just kept shrinking. By the time they reached Louisiana it had become the crawfish.

    I have gotten to where I can fly thru those things.

    The ultimate question for crawfish, do you suck the heads or not?

    I love going to New Orleans which I usually do once or twice a year. Half of it is because of the food. Luckily two people from that area have opened restaurants up here so I can get decent Louisianian food.
