SET THE TABLE
SEASON THE POT
Bring water to a boil, and season it
very, very well with preferred seafood boil spice.
Add halved lemons and garlic cloves.
ADD HEARTIER ITEMS
Go with the ratio of 2:1 seafood to vegetables. Add crawfish, sausage, onions, and new potatoes. Bring water to a simmer for 2 minutes, then cut off heat to soak for 30 minutes.
Note: You’ll have to keep pushing the crawfish down into water, as they tend to want to float.
RE-LIGHT THE FIRE
After 30 minutes, re-light fire and add remaining ingredients like
crab claws, clams, mussels, corn, and lighter vegetables, and return
to a simmer for 10 more minutes.
At this point, the crawfish should be well seasoned, tender, and cooked through,
and vegetables and other seafood should be all evenly cooked.
LAST OF ALL:
SERVE IT HOT!
Dump out onto covered table,
grab an ice cold beer, and gather around with friends to enjoy.
