Default Crawfish: What to do with precooked, whole crawfish

I discovered last night that the Wal-Mart supercenter in Gates, NY
(near my Rochester home) carries in its seafood department whole,
in-the-shell, cooked crawfish. They don't have any uncooked crawfish.
If I were to have a crawfish boil, how would I prepare (re-heat)
these? They're not frozen. Would I just boil them for a few minutes?
Would that make them too tough?

Thanks,

Doc.

Yes, you could heat them up that way; toss them in boiling water just long
enough to heat through. Don't overcook or, you're right, they could become
tough.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

A "few minutes" is too long. You just want to defrost and barely heat them
through.

Why not peel them and make crawfish etouffe out of the meat? Good recipes
for it are easy to find.
