Expert Tips

  • If crab boil package contains two bags, use both bags.
  • The crab boil mixture can be found in the spice section of the supermarket. If unavailable, use a combination of 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes, 6 dried bay leaves and 12 whole cloves. Place seasonings on a square of cheesecloth; bring corners up and tie with string.
  • Warm breadsticks and a tossed salad or coleslaw would nicely accompany this easy meal. Top it off with a chocolate dessert.
