Jim`s Crawfish Recipes

If you are going to cook more than one pot of crayfish you will need a pot with a strainer basket to hold your crayfish. Crayfish can be cooked on a kitchen stove, but it’s easier if you have one of the outdoor gas cookers. These units can bring a big pot of water to boil in a hurry. They can be purchased at many large department or building supply stores for under $50.00.

Basic Salted

 Crayfish can be cooked without salt if you are on a low sodium diet,  
                         but they won’t taste as good. Salted crayfish may be a good way to start  
                         for people who are not used to eating a lot of cajun spices.
                                       I’ve tasted swamp crayfish from some suppliers that were so muddy  
                         tasting they needed to be smothered in cajun spice. Eating salted crayfish  
                         is a good way to tell what your crayfish really taste like.
                                       Bring a pot (2 - 3 gallons) of water to a boil. Stir in one pound of  
                         non-iodized salt and return to boil. This may seem like an excessive amount  
                         of  salt, but crayfish are not in the water very long and it’s not easy for      
                         the salt/seasoning to seep around the shell into the meat. Boil crayfish for
                         3 or 4 minutes.  They will float to the surface and turn bright orangish-red.  
                         Drain crayfish and let cool slightly before eating.

Cajun Boiled

boiled the same as salted crayfish but much less salt is used. Crayfish or crab, cajun spice seasoning is added to the water to taste. If you look at the ingredients you’ll see that salt is the main  ingredient in most of these packages.
