  • 1/3 pot Water
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp Crab Boil Seasoning
  • 10 pieces Asparaguses Cut in half.
  • 1 cup Mushrooms Cut in half.
  • 3 pieces Tomatoes Cut in half.
  • 2 pieces Zucchini Sliced in a few pieces.
  • 2 pieces Oranges Cut in half.
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 4 Sausages
  • 12 lbs Crawfish
  • More water if needed.


  • Take a large bowl and fill its ⅓ with water.
  • Add in garlic, bay leaves, crab boil seasoning, asparagus, mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini, oranges (halved), salt, pepper, and any other vegetables of your choice.
  • Add in sausages. You can slice them in halves if wanted.
  • Bring the water to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook this for about 20 minutes.
  • Add in the crawfish and return the mixture to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer again and cook for about 5 minutes or until the shells turn a bright red. Take one crawfish out and see if it is cooked all the way through.
