Kicking off Crawfish Week at Crawdad Hole

JACKSON, Miss. (MISSISSIPPI WEEKEND) -

The last week in April is the perfect time to celebrate Crawfish Week, because it’s the peak of Crawfish Season!

We’re kicking things off at Crawdad Hole, a go to spot for seafood that’s been serving the Jackson community for close to 30 years! Kevin Green has been apart of the Crawdad Hole family for 16 of those years, and says the crawfish brought him in, but the people and community made him stick around.

Just watching their enjoyment of eating crawfish... we have the capacity to cook more than 350 to 400 pounds of crawfish at one time.

Now that might sound like a lot, but according to arclife.rog, 6 to 7 pounds of crawfish only adds up to about 1 pound of peeled crawfish tail meat. So don’t feel guilty if you order a few pounds for yourself!
