Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a very large pot about 1/3 full with water. Add in garlic, bay leaves, dry and liquid crab boil seasonings, salt, pepper, potatoes, oranges, lemons, and artichokes. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20 minutes.

  • Stir in mushrooms, green beans, onions, and baby corn, and continue to cook, about 15 minutes. Stir in sausage; cook 5 minutes more. 

  • Add crawfish and return the mixture to a boil, then simmer until crawfish shells turn bright red and the tails pull out easily, about 5 minutes. Test for doneness by peeling a crawfish. Be sure not to overcook, or crawfish will become tough.

  • Remove from the heat and carefully drain all liquid. Serve the crawfish boil hot, Louisiana-style, spread over a picnic table covered with newspapers.
