Crawfish boils are a tradition in the Gulf Coast starting in February and ending when mudbugs run out in June. Visitors staying in Pearland during crawfish season can enjoy fresh boiled crawfish with all the trimmings at dozens of traditional and Asian-Cajun seafood restaurants. When you sit down for crawfish in a Pearland restaurant remember this: taste knows no boundaries.
The spiciness of boiled crawfish is a matter of taste and ranges from mild to very, very spicy hot. Asian-Cajun cooked crawfish is bathed in tangy garlic sauces before serving which adds flavor and cools the heat. Traditional sides include potatoes, corn, hard-boiled eggs and cold beer, water or sweet tea to drink.
After boiling the crawfish, a spicy and secret Texas-New Orleans paste is poured on top and tossed in. The crawfish is flavorful, but not scorching hot to the taste.
