How to reheat boiled crawfish

I have about 30 lbs of already cooked/seasoned crawdaddys. They are de-headed so only the tails remain. They are cold from being in the fridge overnight. What's the best way to reheat so I can eat them hot?

TIA

I like them cold.

Why de-headed ?

They taste great cold.

But if you want to eat them hot, boil some water and add a small bag of season. Add lemon or whatever extra season you want along with it... re-heat, take out, and eat.

Why'd you take the heads off? Were they too moist?

You can reheat in a microwave if you must. Do small batches.

Personally, I like em better cold than hot, with the heads on, of course.

Y'all got lazy and just pulled the heads off? Holy shite. Either brown paper bag them whole and stick em in the fridge to peel and eat cold later or peel them completely before you clean up.

Peel them now and make a dish with them.

My bull headed sister did that to about 20 lbs of crawfish that was left over the last time I boiled. I was in the den watching sports on the tube while the last eaters were re-stuffing themselves for the 4th or 5th time. They knew I wanted to keep a bunch of the left-overs to bring home, and she de-headed every last one of them. It pissed me off!

On the re-heating quetion, I normally eat them cold, but they do surprisingly well in the microwave.

No clue why people reheat crawfish. Day after cold crawfish is tradition.

Just FYI "taken aback".

As for the crawfish I've heated them up in the microwave before and they were decent.

No, it brought me some where, and then completely took me back from that place.

The crawfish were given to me as is. I wasnt gonna refuse almost a sack full. No clue why they were de-headed.

As an update I ate a lot cold and they were good (not as good as cold boiled shrimp though). I also experimented with putting them in some seasoned boiling water for a little while to heat them up. This took away a lot of the original seasoning but made the shells softer and easier to peel.

It would be nice to have heads to suck... TWSS
