1. You start with the claws. grab the little critter and twist off the claw from the joint underneath the claw.
2. Crack the claw, the shell is pretty soft so you can use your molars to crack the surface. Pull out the moving part of the claw and if you are a veteran the meat will come out with it. Otherwise dig in with your finger to reach the goodness. I usually use a claw and use it to scrape out the meat with.
3. Next step is to lift the top of the "hood", once open in a 45 degree angle put your Aquavit moistened lips around the opening and suck out the nectar. After you sucked the little one dry you hold the head and tail and with a twisting motion pull head and tail apart.
I also recommend to always have an extra tail resting on the plate for whenever the host calls for a shot. That will set for a constant crayfish high.
We will of course start of with a demo, but go through the steps and you will be as good as any veteran around the table.
