Keeping Your Crawfish Alive Upon Arrival:
If you receive your live crayfish the day before your boil, simply take your crawfish sack and hose them down and place them back in a cooler with a sealed bag of ice. Make sure to open drain hole so they won’t be submerged in standing water. Keep them in a cool place and out of the heat. Your garage is the perfect spot until you're ready to boil.
How To Purge Live Crawfish
- Hose crawfish sack with water thoroughly.
- Empty sack into cooler, ice chest or tub and rinse again (keep drain hole open).
- Close drain hole, sprinkle 1 (16oz.) can of table salt over one sack and add enough water to cover crawfish to purge.
- Let stand for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Drain and repeat above process (1x or 2x).
How To Boil Crawfish (Crawfish Boil)
- Fill large pot with enough water to cover seafood.
- Add our Cajun.com Seafood Boil seasoning mix and bring to a rolling boil.
- Add crawfish. Return to a rolling boil. Boil crawfish 5 minutes.
- Turn fire off and let crawfish soak for 20 to 25 minutes (to you desired spice level).
- Peel ‘em while they're hot and enjoy......
2-4 lbs per sack is normal deadloss from January through March because of temperature changes, molting, and fog. Later on as crawfish shells harden and the weather warms up, dead crawfish should become less of an issue. When the wild spillway crawfish kick in you should definitely see about 1.5-2lbs a sack. If you recieve more deadloss than this in a sack of crawfish from us, please take a video and submit a ticket on our website. Pictures are not acceptable.
