What is a Seafood Boil?
Whether you say shrimp boil, crab boil or 'put everything in the pot' boil, it is all the same meaning. Great food! Come and celebrate all the fun and excitement of seafood boils. It is all about people getting together for a great relaxing time of food, drink and comraderie. The activity of putting all of the ingredients into a large bucket or pot, probably started out as necessity some time ago. Harvesters of various seafoods may not have the luxury of cooking the ingredients a separate apparatuses, nor had the time. Life was hard. So their necessity is now a luxury for us.
One of the best ways to approach and enjoy this type of cooking is to gather the hard shelled seafood you want to eat, such as crawfish, blue crabs, lobster or other. Place these into a pot of boiling. Then put in the harder vegetable such as potatoes. Then place in spices. Let it boil. When almost done, you can then put in some of the softer vegetables such as carrots and onions. Let it all cook until these softer vegetables are done. Turn off the heat and enjoy.
Dig into some tasty looking videos and see how some others have tackled this type of cooking. If you have not yet experienced preparing different types of seafood this way, you are in for a real treat. As you view the videos, you will notice that there is no one exact technique or recipe, except for a big pot of boiling water. Beyond that, you can experiment with the crabs, shrimp, lobster and more. Have fun!
