This old fashioned crawdad gumbo recipe is a long time southern favorite. It is prepared most by people living in Southeastern United States. I image there are just as many recipes for crawdad and crawfish jumbo in Louisiana as there are fried chicken recipes in the south.
Depending on what part of the country you're from, you'll call this tasty meat either crawfish, crayfish or crawdads. I like to think of crawdads as the poor man's lobster.
When the crawdads are right for catching its time for you to consider making this gumbo for dinner. The recipe below is a slight variation of the popular Louisiana style gumbo.
Cookware and Utensils:
Serve your crawdad jumbo over steamed rice with sweet cornbread.
