Instructions

  1. Fill a 5-gallon pot with about 2 ½ gallons of water, and add seasoning from one spice sachet. Reserve 2 sachets of seasoning to sprinkle on top of the finished crawfish.
  2. Add Lemon Juice (or halved Lemons), Worcestershire Sauce, and Garlic Powder to the water pot to your taste.
  3. Bring the seasoned water to a rolling boil.
  4. Add the Corn and Potatoes to the boiling water and let them boil for about 10 minutes.
  5. Add Crawfish, (and Sausage (if you purchased sausage)). NOTE: If you’re adding Shrimp – put the shrimp in the boil during the last 3-5 minutes of cooking (they cook fast!).
  6. Cook the Crawfish until they become bright red (adding optional Shrimp during the last 3-5 mins).
  7. Transfer the ingredients to an empty pot (with a lid).
  8. Sprinkle some seasoning on the cooked seafood & vegetables, and let them steep for 5-10 minutes with the lid on.
  9. Cool for a minute or two, spread over a newspaper-lined table, and enjoy your Crawfish!

**Crawfish should be cooked and consumed within 2 days of pickup**
