Last week Dylan and I were lucky enough to be invited along to one of Brisbane's newest seafood venues: Louisiana Redclaw.
I’ve not had a trip to the States yet, and so I was unfamiliar with this style of seafood dish: The Louisiana Crawfish Boil. The Crawfish is Louisiana’s official State Crustacean and constitutes serious business. A Cajun delicacy, the crawfish is akin to a miniature lobster and lives in freshwater. The Crawfish Boil itself is a tradition that sees family and friends gather in their backyards for huge feasts of crustaceans boiled in aromatic broths alongside corn, potatoes and sausage. After being drained, the seafood and accompaniments are often served on a trestle table covered in newspaper in the backyard!
After doing a bit of research, I am certain we were absolutely spoiled with our experience of a Louisiana Boil at Louisiana Redcla
