Football Eats 10: Crawfish Po' Boys
Each of the last three years, I have written about the Popeyes Crawfish Festival. They are some of the most popular posts I have written; I have told people that Popeyes crawfish are one of my top five favorite fast food items I have ever had.
But my days with Popeyes are done. I've been over it before, no need to rehash it here. When I saw the sign in the window, however, I had a strong craving. So I decided to make them myself.
I went to Fish Tales and picked up a container of crawfish tails.
Zatarain's shrimp batter served me well last time I made fried shrimp myself, so I used it again: a dunk in the liquid batter then a roll through the mixture.
The crawfish tails are already cooked, so they don't take more than a couple of minutes in the hot oil to brown the batter.
I still had some soft Martin's hoagie rolls left over from sandwiches I made the other night. These work perfectly.
I got a large pickle at a deli across the street and diced it around the edges (to reduce the amount of seeds) and soaked it in vinegar for a few hours for some extra sourness.
