For a 60 to 100 quart pot, fill 1/2 full of water. Add 4 to 6, 16 ounce containers of King Kooker® Crab Boil (complete, nothing to add). Bring water to a rolling boil. Add seafood. Gently stir. Cover the pot and return to boil. Shrimp—2 minutes; Crawfish—5 minutes; Crabs—5 minutes. Cut off the fire. Gently stir the seafood again and let it soak. Add one 8 ounce bottle of King Kooker® Crab Boil.

Soaking time: Shrimp—5 to 10 minutes; Crawfish and Crabs—15 to 30 minutes.

Seafood tends to float on the surface while soaking and will not thoroughly absorb the seasoning. Add the equivalent of four trays of ice to the pot, allowing it to float on the surface of the liquid. This sudden change of temperature causes the seafood to sink and to draw in the great flavor of “King Kooker® Seasoning.”

A Little Extra
To complement your seafood, try including a few pounds of creamer potatoes*, a dozen ears of corn, a pound of fresh mushrooms, five or six cloves of garlic, fresh peeled onions, hot dogs, smoked sausage or andouille sausage.

*Hint: Allow potatoes extra cooking time by adding them to the boiling seasoned water 5 to 10 minutes before adding the seafood.
