Step 1

Make sure your boiling pot is large enough to hold all the crawfish and enough water to cover them at least two inches. Fill the pot with water.

Add everything except crawfish, and bring to a boil. Add crawfish to the pot, let the water come back to a full boil, cover, and allow to boil five to seven minutes. Turn off the fire. Let stand with lid on for 15 to 20 minutes.

Drain crawfish and dump onto a newspaper-covered table. Chow down. Serves six to ten people.

This recipe yields 6 to 10 servings.
