    • Crawfish Boil
    • Boiled Shrimp

    Here's a little Lagniappe for ya...

    Ultimate Seafood Boil "How To" Guide

    This is a general how-to guide that covers the ins and outs of boiling crawfish. We recommend that you use this information as a "cheat sheet" while referring to one of our boiled crawfish recipes for specific quantities and measurements. Happy boiling!

    STEP 1

    Alright, so you're ready to impress your friends with a Louisiana-style crawfish boil. Better make sure you have the right equipment on hand first. You'll need a 15 to 20 gallon pot to boil the crawfish in, a metal basket to fit the pot, and a propane burner to cook on. In Louisiana, crawfish cookers are available in most hardware, grocery, discount, and sporting goods stores.

    STEP 2

    Next, get your hands on a sack of LIVE crawfish, which usually weighs about 40 pounds (yields about 10 lbs. of crawfish meat.) That will feed 8 to 10 Louisianans, or as many as 20 in less crawfish-fertile regions. If you're not lucky enough to have an uncle who has a crawfish pond or to live near the Atchafalaya Basin, you'll have to go to your neighborhood seafood vendor.

    STEP 3

    An hour or two before you're ready to cook, set up your crawfish cooker outside near a water source, preferably in a shady area. Next you'll want to purge, or clean, the crawfish—pour them out of the sack into the metal basket and dip the basket in and out of a large washtub of cool water, changing the water several times until the crawfish are clean. Don't leave the crawfish covered with water, as they need air to stay alive. Using gloves, discard any dead crawfish and debris. Keep the crawfish in a cool or shaded area until you're ready to start cooking.

    STEP 4

    Shortly before you're ready to eat, add the water and seasoning to the pot and bring it to a boil on the propane burner. Once the spices are dissolved, you can add the potatoes and onions and cook them until they are halfway done. Then add the crawfish, return to boiling, and start timing them; they will turn bright red-orange as they cook. When the cooking time is almost up, remove a couple of crawfish from the pot, peel them, and check for doneness. They cook quickly, so don't overcook them or they will be tough, dry, and hard to peel.

    STEP 5

    When the crawfish are done, lift the basket out of the pot and set it down to drain for a couple of minutes, then pour the crawfish out on a table covered with newspaper. They are best served hot. Eat them plain or dip them into a bowl of Zatarain's Cocktail Sauce. And make sure you have plenty of cold beverages on hand to cool down peppered tongues.

    A dollop of creamy deliociousness... Mmmmm!!!

    • Cafe Du Monde Coffee & Chicory
    • cafe du monde store front

    Coffee was introduced by the French to North America in the mid 1700 by way of the Port of Orleans.  It continued to filter into the colonies along the Mississippi River.  During the Civil War, coffee was scarce, so chicory (a plant whose roots can be roasted and used to flavor coffee) was added to not only add flavor and boldness, but also extend their supply.  Even after coffee was back in full supply the love for chicory coffee lasted as part of our Nawlins culture and heritage.

    Most famous for serving Coffee and Chicory is Cafe Du Monde in the heart of the French Quarter.  Cafe du Monde has been brewing its famous coffee and frying up its famous beignets since 1862.  Even with its small menu consisting of beignets, coffee and chicory, white and chocolate milk, and fresh squeezed orange juice, it is still a must on the itinerary if you are headed to the French Quarter.  

    Want to make the perfect Cafe du Monde Cafe Au Lait???  It's easy!

    Now if you just had a plate of beignets...

    Have no fear! We can help with that too!!! Grab a box of Cafe du Monde Beignet Mix  OR try your hand at making them from scratch!!!
