  1. Looks like we are going to put you guys in charge of the shrimp, crab, crawfish or whatever boil at the beach this summer!!

  2. You guys are too damn cute!!!

  3. This was a great video! I’ve never made crawfish before but this makes me want to give it a shot. Can you tell us some more about the set-up with the pot and colander? Could I do this on a stove? Thanks again.

    • Hi Liz! Thanks so much! you can definitely do it over stove. The outside pot and colander are just and easy way to do quantity and straining. you can absolutely use a large cooking pot inside and just strain the crawfish in a colander in the sink. It’s all about just seasoning the boiling water. You can even just boil crawfish in some crawfish/shrimp boil, strain, and sprinkle some Tony Chachere’s all over and serve.
