One Pot Wonder: A Crawfish Boil

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

The victims.

The Chef, Mr. Nick.

The assistant, Mrs. Ashley.

Assistant #2, Mr. Matt.

Wash , purge, repeat. (A glutton for punishment, Macey.)

The spice, the large bag.

The salt.

The ingredients.




Retrieve your garlic, mushrooms, corn, onions, and sausage. Yum!

Add to the pot.

Bring to a rolling boil for 3 mintues.

Turn off the heat and cover.

Pull the straining basket out.

Shovel onto a paper covered table.

Serve with saltine crackers and special sauce and dig in.

Special Sauce:

What do you do when your power is out, your house is a mess, and you have out-of-town guests on the way in? Throw an impromptu Crawfish Boil, hooray!

On Friday night we lost power half way through Pinocchio, boo! Saturday morning we went to our favorite breakfast spot and spent the rest of the morning at the library waiting for the power to come back on. No such luck, but......... the day got much better when we got a call from our friends the Lufts, Nick and Ashley.

Nick is a spectacular cook! He is from Louisiana and serves the most wonderful southern dishes. Fried grits for brunch and Jambalaya for Super Bowl, Out of control!

Sorry I don't have a real recipe for this one, but you know how guys cook...... a little of this, a little of that, and boom turns out amazingly delicious. Basically Nick and Ashley showed up with a cooler full of crawfish, the biggest pot you have ever seen, an oar to stir, and bags of veggies and seasoning. The rest is history.

The food was not just tasty, but incredibly beautiful! The colors were so vibrant, I had to share. We ate until the table was clear and our bellies were stuffed full. There was great fun had by all! Thanks again friends!
