Easy-Crawfish-Crayfish

Growing up was the best in Hawaii…easy dinner by going river and catching a bucket full of crayfish. It’s a little time consuming to eat but awesome for pupus and beer on the side.

Most Asian markets sell them fresh, my kids love when I bring them home alive. Does not taste the same when they are frozen but you sure can use frozen for this recipe.
