Step 1: Start with live crawfish.
Step 2: Rinse the crawfish several times, until the rinse water becomes clear.
Step 3: Fill an extra-large pot halfway with water. Place over a high flame and bring the water to a boil.
Step 4: Add Boil Seasoning.
Step 5: Prepare additives. Cut up your celery, halve your lemons and onions, and chop off the tops and bottoms of garlic bulbs. Cut sausage into pieces. Potatoes can be added whole, right out of the bag!
Step 6: Once the water has come to a rolling boil, add the crawfish.
Step 7: Let the crawfish boil for about 4 minutes, then turn off the heat.
Step 8: Add 2 bags of ice to the mixture to help the flavor set.
Step 9: Let the crawfish soak.
(Soak no more than 10 – 12 minutes for a more mild flavor, or at least 20 minutes if you like spice.)
Step 10: Drain the crawfish and pour onto a newspaper-covered table. Time to eat!
