Milton Zatarain’s Crawfish Boil

Milton Zatarain’s Crawfish Boil



  1. Bring all the ingredients except the crawfish to a boil, and let them boil 5 minutes; then add crawfish. Return to a boil, boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Turn off the fire and add the gallon of ice water; this makes the crawfish sink under water. Let soak 30 minutes and then drain.

Cajuns like to pour the drained crawfish and veggies, onto a newspaper covered table, and let folks just help themselves!

This is a basic recipe for boiling crawfish. Lot's of folks add other ingredients, like mushrooms, asparagus, etc. during the boiling process
