Don’t forget the boil!
A crawfish boil always refers to the seasoning. If you want to try your hand at your own seasonings it’s a great way to get creative or go with one of the trusted blends like the Louisiana Crawfish Shrimp & Crab Boil Seasoning. These seasonings are packed with some of the best Cajun spices, making your boil even easier!
- Fill your boil pot with the basket inserted with water, boil seasoning, cayenne, lemons, garlic, onion and other optional seasonings.
- Bring to a boil over high heat and let cook for 15 minutes.
- Add (cleaned, live) crawfish and any other optional ingredients. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are just about “fork tender”. If you are not using potatoes, cook for only 15 minutes.
- Turn the heat down to low (not simmering or boiling) and let the boil sit for an additional 15 minutes (to absorb all of the flavors).
- Serve immediately – remove the basket from the pot, drain well, and spread the goods on a paper-lined table. Watch the guests flock to your southern style crawfish boil!
