    Crawfish is so much better. It's also much more tender than shrimp.

    I do like shrimp cocktail. However, I don't care for fried shrimp at all. I also like shrimp in fried rice at chinese restaurants.

    Crawfish hands down.

    Shrimp and crawfish are at the top of my list of favorite foods. I'm going to have to say shrimp because there are so many things you can do starting with raw shrimp while crawfish have already been boiled before you start to use them in any recipe.

    I don't see why I have to choose. I refuse to choose!

    Tough choice but I will go with shrimp. Like Bengal B said, you can do a little more with a shrimp.

    I'll go with shrimp on this one also due to the many different ways I eat them. However it may just be because crawfish are so hard to come by at times.

    I Disagree Bengal B
    You can buy raw crawfish peeled with the fat at the supermarket and do a million things with it.
    Case in Point: Crawfish etoufee is so much better tasting than shrimp etoufee shrimp etoufee just doesn't have the same flavor. I like shrimp but in my book crawfish rules. That delicous crawfish fat makes the difference, shrimp don't have the fat.
