The season of the live crawfish boil has started at Mara’s Homemade in Syosset.
Mara’s, which specializes in New Orleans cuisine as well as Arkansas-style barbecue, is pricing the delicious crustaceans at $15 per pound. The first shipment arrived on Dec. 2. Expect the zesty, Louisiana bayou mainstay to be available through Memorial Day.
Crawfish-stuffed bread, with baked crawfish and cheese in a hollowed-out baguette, is another way to enjoy these beauties. Mara’s also is offering a special holiday jambalaya, with chicken, andouille sausage, Gulf shrimp, and mussels.
And don’t forget the chocolate cream pie for dessert.
