Entertain with a Louisiana Crawfish Boil! 

If you live in Louisiana, most likely you will be invited to a crawfish boil this time of year.  We get just as excited about crawfish season as we do about Mardi Gras in Louisiana.  Now, crawfish boils take place all over the country and are enjoyed by so many more people.  But, there’s nothing like our Louisiana crawfish!  Did you know Louisiana produces over 90% of the crawfish nationwide?  So, we are the experts when it comes to Louisana crawfish


Crawfish Boils Fun Times During Crawfish Season

My daughter lives in Dallas, Texas and she has more crawfish boils than I do. Throughout Texas and the southern states, this favorite Louisiana crustacean has become a popular seafood. Crawfish boils are casual cooking for company. No worries about decorations and the weather is great for outside entertaining.  If you have newspapers and paper towels, that’s about it. Best of all, the adults get to enjoy the eating crawfish and the kids run around outside.

When it comes to the recipe for a crawfish boil, I have learned everyone has their own style and tricks! It is a one-pot meal as you have crawfish and all the other vegetables tossed in like corn, potatoes, mushrooms and whatever you want.  You can buy crawfish seasoning or make your own.  Some like crawfish spicy and some not.  This is one recipe you get to make up and there’s no right or wrong.  I have lots of healthy crawfish recipes but I let honestly learn from everyone else about their favorite crawfish boil recipe.
