Serves 10


one of the seasoning blends that us used in a boil for seafood.


4 tablespoons yellow mustard seeds
3 tablespoons coriander seeds
2 tablespoons whole allspice
2 tablespoons dill seeds
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
8 bay leaves Salt and cayenne pepper (or liquid hot sauce) to taste


Combine all dry ingredients thoroughly. Place in a square of muslin or cheesecloth and tie securely with string, like a large sachet d'ipices. Add salt and cayenne or hot sauce to taste. When water for seafood is boiling, add the bag and boil for several minutes, until the boiling liquid is tinted and seasoned, then add shellfish and cook until done, depending on what you're using.


Yield: Enough crab boil seasoning for 5 pounds of seafood, sausages and vegetables (corn on the cob, red potatoes and whole small onions). You can add whatever you like. the potatoes are the best. This is like Zatarain's Crab Boil which is the best ready-mixed seasonings. Just add whatever seafood, meat and vegetables you like.
