HOW TO BOIL LIVE CRAWFISH IN SAN ANTONIO
Prepare Boiling Pot
Begin by filling a large pot half full of water, then placing the pot on a propane cooker (preferably outside). Light the cooker and bring the water to a boil. (Bringing the water to a boil may take up to 45 minutes.)
Thoroughly Rinse Crawfish
While waiting for the water to come to a boil, start rinsing the crawfish. It is recommended to rinse them multiple times, until all the excess water is draining clear.
Add Crawfish Seasoning
When it comes to seasoning crawfish, there are a variety of seasons out there. We prefer this method:
- 1 box salt
- 5 bags of 3-oz Zatarain’s shrimp and crab boil seasoning
- 1 4-oz bottle of Zatarain's’ liquid shrimp and crab boil seasoning
- 4 tablespoons red pepper
- 3 tablespoons black pepper
- 4 lemons
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 white onions
Add Your Fixin's
This is where you add your favorites fixin's to boil with the crawfish.
- 8 lemons
- 12 ears corn ... we like the "mini" ears
- 12 large, or 24 small (preferred), potatoes
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4 white onions
- You can also add a package of frozen boudin.
- Mushrooms - Put them in at the very end or they will be too spicy.
Add Them Mudbugs!
Finally, we get to the good part. Let's boil some crawfish. Once water is boiling, pour in the crawfish. Once you get the water to boil again, wait five minutes. Then turn off the fire and let the crawfish sit 15 minutes. After 15 minutes you can pour the mudbugs in an ice-chest to keep warm, or directly on a table to start eating. Enjoy!
Time To Eat!
Gather your friends and family and enjoy some of God's most delicious creatures, MUDBUGS!
BOILED CRAWFISH FAQS
What Do Crawfish Taste Like?
Crawfish are considered a type of seafood. Other than tasting amazing, they are somewhat close to the lobster family; however, they are certainly more meatier. The crawfish texture is very subtle, close to that of shrimp and can sometime be described as a combination of crab and shrimp. Depending on the level of spice, crawfish can have a kick, that's the Louisiana touch.
HOW DO I EAT CRAWFISH?
When it comes to eating San Antonio Crawfish, you better be ready to get your hands dirty. Our crawfish are typically cooked with corn, onions, lemons, mushrooms, and sausage. With the right amount of spice and all of them being boiled together, they are amazing.
ARE CRAWFISH SMALL LOBSTERS?
This is a common misconception due to the appearance. Lobster are salt water creatures and crawfish live in fresh water areas. Crawfish are sometimes called mudbugs because they live in the swampy parts of the country.
