Cajun Crawfish Boil

This is the favorite meal of many Cajuns.  See the video to know how to break off the tail and peel off the first scale for easy access and eating!


10 lbs of crawfish ( or more)

4 lbs of sausage (or more)

2 or 3 large onions

1 bunch of scallions (or more)

1 or 2 heads of garlic

2 or 3 bell peppers

corn on the cob (if fresh)

red (Cayenne) pepper

black pepper

crawfish boil package (optional)

A great big pot!



Cut the vegetables

Cut the sausage into 4 inch pieces

Fill the pot about 1/2 full of water

As water is about to boil add the vegetables and sausage

Let this boil until the veggies and sausage is cooked

Add the crawfish when the water is at a strong boil

The cold crawfish will stop the boiling for a minute or two. 

The crawfish is all done when the are all red.  (see video)

Do not over cook.  About ten minutes is good.  It will be tough if you cook too long.

Scoop out the food and eat!
