Crazy for Crawfish at The Seafood Shoppe

1 of 25
It's like clockwork: Every year when crawfish season comes around, Houston loses its damn mind. At The Seafood Shoppe one recent Saturday afternoon, Houstonians of every stripe were busy breaking off tails and sucking heads. I was nearly face-down in a stainless-steel bowl that held two pounds of The Seafood Shoppe's boiled crawfish. The crawfish were all gone in only 30 short minutes. But they were some of the best I'd had all season. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
