A Touch of New Orleans

Seafood Boil

I’ve been on Facebook and Intagram the past couple of weeks and my family and friends are having crab, crawfish and shrimp boils back home……very very jealous.  So, since I’m not home enjoying it with them, I decided to have my own version.  Ok, I live in the Midwest now and I can’t get live crawfish, so I decided to use what I got…..Shrimp, Crab legs, corn, sausage and red potatoes…….Oh my. Can’t wait to dig in.

I started with this:

I boiled the potatoes and corn together for about 20 minutes, set aside and boiled the onion, garlic, celery, quartered lemon, bay leaves, crab boil, and creole seasoning in a large pot….add sausage 5 minutes, add crab legs and cook for 5 more minutes and finally add shrimp and cook for one more minute.  Make sure you add lots of salt.  Sorry about not having measurements, but I just add the amount I feel is right.

and it’s done.

This will hold me over until I can make it home.
