Suck da Heads and Pinch da Tails Creole Spice

Suck da Heads and Pinch da Tails Creole Spice
Staff Writer



The title of this homemade Creole-style dry spice mix comes from a popular phrase in south Louisiana that refers to the manner in which we peel boiled crawfish: "Pinch the tail" to loosen the meat before peeling, and "suck the head" because many people say that's where the best flavor is.

This mixture can be used to season just about anything where a recipe calls for Creole or Cajun spice.
