1 lb smoked sausage, sliced

1 Tbsp olive oil

New potatoes 5-6 per person

Corn – 1 ear per person

1 onion, quartered

1 lemon, cut in half

Zatarains Crab Boil (or any brand you like)

4 to 6 lb crawfish – depending on how much your crowd will devour

Optional: Beer and extra salt


In a very large pot, sauté sausage in olive oil to lightly brown.

When sausage is browned, add water to the pot to fill it about half-way to the top - add crab boil, potatoes, and beer and salt if desired.

When the water boils, add corn, onion and lemon. (Add more water if necessary)

Cook until potatoes are just tender – about 10 minutes.

Add crawfish and cook until liquid is at a rolling boil.

Remove from heat, drain, serve in a large bowl.
