First, the french toast. It's familiar even in our place, I even tried it in one of our local restaurants in the Philippines. But I never knew how to make it. Maybe because, unlike here, some of the ingredients were not readily available in the grocery stores or not included in our budget (hehehe). Back to the french toast. Well, it's easy. Just mix milk, eggs, orange zest (if available) and cinnamon (I added sugar to taste). Dip the bread to the mixture. And fry it using butter. Serve with butter and honey or maple syrup. That's it.
Then, we tried cooking their local seafood... crawfish. When cooking it, you should have live ones (or the dead ones will affect the taste). Here are the steps:
- Clean the crawfish first with water.
- Boil water into a pot. Add seasoning (we used Louisiana premix)
- Once the seasoned water comes to a boil, add the potatoes, corn, garlic, and sausage. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
- Add the crawfish and cook for 3 minutes. Turn off the heat after and leave the pot covered for 10 minutes.
- Drain well and serve immediately.
Now, eating crawfish is somewhat like what you do with shrimps. Take off the head ant tail, then peel off it's shell. And by the way, remove it's digestive tract (it's the black part located inside the meat of the crawfish). It's easy to remove it, just watch YouTube if you'll get a hard time figuring it out. Bon appetit! Yahweh bless.
