Boiled Crabs with Zatarain's Shrimp and Crab Boil

Boiling crabs during the summer can be easy when you have all the right stuff!  This easy recipe can be done indoors or out!  If your boiling outdoors for a party just make sure you have a huge pot and a propane burner.

I also recommend lining your table with a plastic or vinyl cloth covered with news papers.  Lots of paper towels, Tabasco, butter, good friends and drinks!


  • 3 Quarts of water
  • One package Zatarain's Shrimp & Crab Boil In Bag
  • 1/4 C Salt
  • 1 Whole Lemon quartered
  • One Dozen Crabs
  • Two Tablespoons Vinegar
Add all ingredients to your large pot, bring to a boil.  Carefully add the crabs. Return to boil and let cook for 20 minutes.  Turn off heat source and let sit for five minutes (this lets the crabs absorb more of the spices). 

Remove Crabs from liquid and serve with extra lemon and drawn butter.

Karen's Tip:  To spice up the crabs a bit, add some Tabasco to the liquid!

Serves 4, prep and cook time total 25 minutes!



  1. Karen,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog Life in the Hills. Our Papa Joe's is huge and beautiful! You should make a trip over to see it. It's right off of Rochester Rd. I'm going to add your blog to my blog roll since we are practically neighbors:)

  2. PS. There is a huge upstairs with wines under $10:)
