If you intend to have a gastronomical experience like no other when it comes to consuming crawfish, then make sure that all the juices in its head must be sucked by you. You can easily determine if a person is a pro at eating crawfish when what they do first is they bite the head off of these crustaceans and then crush them with their teeth in order for them to entirely suck the flavor and juice off of it. If you are not into sucking the head of crawfish, make sure that you keep the meat found on its tail.

By holding the tail of the crawfish, make sure that you slide your thumb or finger inside the first shell segments found at the top of its tail that was attached to its head. So that you can expose the meat of its tail, make sure that you are peeling away the shell segments that you can find on top. As the bottom portion of the shell still remains, make sure that you slowly bring the tail meat into your mouth and then you must be able to lightly sink your teeth into its exposed meat. As you are biting down the meat lightly, make sure that you squeeze and at he same time suck the tail base of the crawfish. Since the tail meat is popping into your mouth, the shell in the tail will then be left in your fingers.
