This Louisiana classic dish is one of the most popular, and arguably most delicious preparations of fresh crawfish. Plenty of experienced crawfish boilers would advise you to save yourself some after dinner clean-up and skip the serving ware, as this dish is best served directly on the tabletop--just be sure to lay down a few layers of parchment paper first. Sol is a brand of light Mexican lager that works great in this recipe, but if you have trouble finding it, Corona is a fine substitute.
