Crawfish Boil Recipe

Makes - 10 to 15 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (35-pound) sack live crawfish
  • 1.5 (26-ounce) boxes of table salt
  • 1 - 4 oz tin of Home Appetit Everyday Chef’s Blend
  • 3 ounces Zatarain’s Shrimp & Crab Boil liquid concentrate (3/4 of a 4-ounce bottle)
  • 8 to 10 medium new potatoes, such as Red Bliss or Yukon gold
  • 4 small yellow onions, cut in half

Directions

  1. Find out if your crawfish have been purged. If they haven’t, soak in fresh water for 10 minutes (some people say you need to salt—you don’t).
  2. While you’re waiting, fill an 80-quart pot (fitted with a strainer insert) halfway with water and bring to a boil over a large outdoor burner over high heat. Add Spice Blend, table salt and , Zatarain’s.
  3. Add potatoes and onions to the pot. (No need to peel either.) Boil vegetables for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cover a table with newspapers, flattened cardboard boxes, or plastic trays for serving the crawfish.
  4. Add half the crawfish to the pot. After 5 minutes turn off the heat, cover, and let the crawfish steep to absorb the flavors for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and dump onto the table. Repeat with the rest of the crawfish (you can boil 2 to 3 batches of crawfish in the same water-seasoning mixture).
  5. Eat plain or with dippin’ sauces like cocktail sauce, mayonnaise, ketchup, or Tabasco.
