 Ingredients List

  • 8 qt Water
  • Your favorite crab boil
  • Seasoning
  • Zatarain's -- Rex, Golden
  • Dipt,
  • Old Bay
  • Chef Paul's -- etc
  • Or -- make your own-(for
  • 8 qt Water
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 1 tb Cayenne pepper
  • 1 ts Fennel seed
  • 1 ts Mustard seed
  • 1 tb Dried thyme
  • 1 tb Peppercorns -- end boil
  • Ingred
  • 1 tb Salt
  • 2 Onion -- large chunks
  • 3 Ribs celery -- in large
  • Chunks
  • 24 Whole new potatoes --
  • (preferably red b's)
  • 12 Ears corn on the cob -- cut
  • In thirds
  • 2 lb Shrimp -- 31-35 -- green


Put water in a pot large enough (12 qt) to hold the ingredients, add the
seasoning mix and the onions and celery. Bring to a boil then reduce heat
and simmer for 30 minutes to infuse the water with the seasonings.Bring to
a boil again and add the potatoes. Bring to a boil again. Ten minutes later
add the corn. Bring to a boil again. Ten minutes later add the shrimp, cook
until just done,(about 5 min), do not over cook the shrimp. The idea is to
not over cook any of the main ingredients. Drain. Serve in a large bowl for
all to serve themselves, or portion it if you like. Serve with soft butter
in bowls for dipping. I also like to sprinkle Old Bay Seasoning on the
finished product. You can make batches of this if you drain the cooking
liquid into another container for re-use, rather than down the drain.
