Are you talking about boiled crawfish? If so that’s the dumbest thing ever. All it does is put seasoning all over your hands and lips.

This is why Texas people shouldn’t boil crawfish

I used to think it was just a Texas thing but I've seen bonafied coonasses do it too. It's a headscratcher for sure.

Pretty sure that transfers to what you eat.

We have an annual boil done this way for a salt-sensitive guest of honor, and everyone seems to enjoy them just fine.

As to the OP asking about how it’s done, it’s simple. Pour crawfish into ice chest, pour lots of Tony’s onto crawfish, put lid on, pick it up, and shake it around.

If you’re one of them baws that only uses ice chests made for a week at sea, you might find that a little heavy, unless you’re also one of them baws that lives at Anytime Fitness and takes the creatine.

I can tell you my recipe, which always gets compliments.

You want to boil the crawfish in water seasoned with salt and lemon only. This maintains the natural flavor of the crawfish meat without overpowering it with spices.

Once boiled, then drain and immediately dump in a quick ice bath to stop them from cooking.

After they have cooled and stopped the internal cooking, transfer to the biggest ice chest you have and liberally coat with Tony Chachere's (or your cajun spice of choice). All of those hoity toity pre-mixed powders and liquids are unnecessary and a waste of money.

Shake the ice chest as vigorously as you can (will probably need the assistance of a buddy), then dump on a table and enjoy.

Why don't they just eat a spoon full of seasoning instead of going through the trouble of peeling the crawfish?

My problem with it is there is never any juice in the heads if you don't soak. That's my favorite part.

I've never done the seasoning in ice chest method, but I've had it at other people's boils and they tasted ok.

I find the seasoning kind of dissolves with the steam in the ice chest and infuses in the crawfish.

Some of the best crawfish I've ever eaten was sprinkled with seasoning after being boiled in regular crawfish boil....very lightly sprinkled though. Then, it gets mixed up in a big tub fresh out of the pot


Eta: My buddy makes his own seasoning to go on afterwards

This.

I had some done this way a couple weeks ago, it was terrible. No juice and the meat tasted like it was boiled in water.

Sure they would have been phenomenal had I licked the shell and then ingested the meat tho.

I used to consider this sacrilege until I met people from Crowley. Honestly I could not tell the difference vs the soak method. The difference was the efficiency of the operation. The water was always boiling and the pre-measured seasoning was the same so the batches were consistent.
