So now we're going to demonstrate how to clean and peel a crawfish tail for eating and these are already been cooked and a good thing to look for on crawfish is that the tails are actually curled under after they've been boiled. Which means they actually alive when they were boiled, if the tail was straight out like this we don't want to eat those because that crawfish was dead before it was boiled. So we're going to separate the tail from the head so we're just going to peel off the top part of the head and the tail comes off just like so and then what we want to do is just take the first couple of rings off of the tail this way then we're going to pinch the base of the tail and gently pull on the meat and that pops out of there just like that, and that is a peeled crawfish tail.
