This is the original Zatarain's Crab & Shrimp Boil with seven spices and seasonings in a porous boil-in-bag. One bag plus salt to taste perfectly seasons up to 4 pounds of crawfish and shrimp or up to 1 dozen crabs. This is the secret ingredient in many a seafood recipe.

BOILING SEAFOOD One bag of crab boil is sufficient for 4 pounds of shrimp, 4 pounds of crawfish or 1 dozen crabs. Steps: In a large cooking container add 3 quarts of water, 4 Tbsp. of salt, 1 bag of Zatarain's Crab Boil-Dry, and 1 lemon (quartered). Add cayenne pepper to taste, if desired. Bring water mix to a rolling boil. Add seafood and bring to a boil. Boil crabs vigorously for 20 minutes, crawfish 15 minutes, and shrimp 2 minutes. Allow seafood to remain in water 5 minutes after boiling. Adding 2 tablespoons of vinegar to the water makes crabs easier to pick.

Remove and discard any dead crawfish or debris. Add first eleven ingredients to large pot (52 qt) stir thoroughly and bring to boil. Allow to boil for 5 minutes before adding potatoes. Add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes (for larger potatoes, cook longer). Add crawfish, stir, and cover pot; return to boil and cook for 3 to 5 minutes depending on size of crawfish (add corn after 2 minutes).Remove pot from fire and allow to stand 3 minutes. Add ice in bags to stop cook (by adding ice in bags, the seasoning will not be diluted.) Allow to soak for 15 to 30 minutes. Note: The longer the crawfish soak, the spicier they will be. Hint: Add one stick of margarine to pot --- will make crawfish easier to peel.
