Simmer (what?) uncooked for 5 minutes.
Serve with hot rice, if in the south (what?) good with grits.

Please don't call me late for supper.


  1. I learned how to make a rue from my Granny the Ho. Fried chicken, biscuits and gravy too.
    Important skills for us GRITS

  2. Never having seen a crayfish tail you got me wondering what they look like. Is that why you added the picture above the video? I can see rolling them in flour and dipping them in butter but wouldn't boiling them be a bit over the top?

    And rice or grits? Either would be a bit sloppy on the sheets wouldn't it?

  3. You are late for supper. WHERE THE HELL AM I GOING TO GET CRAYFISH IN NEBRASKA...ASSHOLE! I do have grits though.

  4. PENo...sounds like good eatin'
    Walkin' Man...I'll take your advice 'bout the boilin' and rice on the sheets. Tell you the truth ain't nothin' better that GRITS on the sheets, with et tu fay cookin' up in the kitchen.
    Jadedj...get that fat daddie Ben Nelson to ship 'em to ya'.

  5. Shit. That's why I can't find a man since movin' to Bubbaville. They didn't teach us how to make biskits up in Pennsyltucky.

  6. He's to busy doing drug czars.

  7. make that "too". I hate it when I do that...and intell is going to be all over me like flies on a hound dawggy.

  8. You're ok, jaded. I make exceptions for comments.

  9. Intelli...biskits and gravy, boy howdy, with bacon. Lickin' my chops. that should read 'He's to busy doing drug czars, too."? has to make exceptions for most of JJ's foibles. I mean, he is just to lovable. One just wants to pick him up and squeezzze.

  10. You're a charmer P...and you keep your squeezin to yourself too, boy.

  11. That recipe looks fabulous and I'm giving it a try. On grits of course. I'm looking forward to meeting you and the fabulous Mr. Charleston when you come to Atlanta later in the year for the race. I might even cook ya'll some good southern grub.

  12. the recipe is tantalizing.... with promises of sweet tasting delights.... and the photo, well, more of the same, I guess; the pairing is exactly what I have come to expect and admire.
