What's the best thing to add to a crawfish boil?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Any crawfish fans out there with advice on upping the boil game?

COTC & new taters as far as sides go for me. Always used Zatarain's bulk boil, healthy doses of cayenne, beer, and lemons for the shellfish jacuzzi.

What everyone else said and add artichokes to that.  When done you just peel a leaf from the whole piece, pop it in your mouth and pull out the meat of the artichoke much like you do with the the crawfish tail where you pop/pull/suck the meat out of the tail into the mouth when you eat them.

Lemons, red potatoes, corn on the cob, whole fresh green beans, a couple heads of garlic, fresh crabs, fresh shrimp, whole okra, chicken legs, and after all that is cooked and out of the pot, add any link sausage you like.

I'm really on that artichoke idea that TBM lobbed out earlier.  I've used crawfish boil to cook rice and pasta for a little extra kick, but I can't wait to try 'chokes in some Zatarain's....

The artichokes are awesome this way and squeeze right out!

Oh, and get out of the way of your guests. For many people the pure joy of a crawfish boil is enhanced by the addition of various vegetables and meats to the pot. The usual additions are whole button mushrooms, smoked sausage, small potatoes, onions, and carrots, corn on the cob and whole cloves of garlic
