Crawfish are actually most closely related to lobster. They're low in fat, and the spices they're cooked in don't really get into the meat much because of the shell. Should be fine to eat, as long as you don't drench them in butter or fiery sauce. And they're absolutely delicious! I'd suggest you don't suck the heads, though, as the purpose of doing that is to get the flavorful fat that's stored there. Since fat doesn't always agree with us....
