Captain Crab serves up some great seasfood!  The Crawfish Boil is a celebratory event where Cajuns boil crawfish, potatoes, onions and corn in large pots over propane cookers. Lemons and small muslin bags containing a mixture of bay leaves, mustard seeds, cayenne pepper, and other spices, commonly known as “crab boil” or “crawfish boil” are added to the water for seasoning. The results are then dumped onto large, newspaper-draped tables and in some areas covered in Creole/Cajun spice blends, such as REX, Zatarain’s, Louisiana Fish Fry, or Tony Chachere’s. Also, cocktail sauce, mayonnaise, and hot sauce are sometimes used. The seafood is scooped onto large trays or plates and eaten by hand. During times when crawfish are not abundant, shrimp and crabs are prepared and served in the same manner. Attendees are encouraged to “suck the head” of a crawfish by separating the head from the abdomen of the crustacean and sucking out the fat and juices from the head. Seafood boils with crabs and shrimp are also popular.
