You don’t have to miss out on a good seafood/crawfish boil. Even if you don’t want seafood, you can basically boil whatever you like in a seafood boil. You’ll see below, I’ve added all keto friendly choices into my boil. Hope you enjoy!
Ingredients: (all optional)
- 2lbs gulf shrimp, shell on
- 2 chicken breast cubed
- Bundle of asparagus
- 1lb fresh green beans
- 1 head cauliflower cut
- 1 package Louisiana crawfish, shrimp, crab boil
- 1tbs crab boil concentrate (use caution, I think this contains the heat)
Let’s start with getting your stock pot heating up. Fill about 2/3 full of hot water, add the seasoning pack and concentrate. Bring to a rolling boil.
While your pot is coming to a boil, get all your veggies and meat cut up. Everything will go in except the shrimp. They will go in last.
When your pot is at a rolling boil, carefully add all your veggies and meats, except the shrimp. When you do this. You will lose boil. Place the lid back on and let it get boiling again. Stir your ingredients a few times while it’s coming back to a boil.
Boil for about 10 minutes. When your 10 minutes is up, now you can add your shrimp. Put your shrimp in and cook only 3 minutes and then turn the fire off. You can now remove the meat and veggies to a pan. If you like really spicy, let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
I can tell you this… this combination was really spicy. I didn’t let them soak at all after the time was up. The cauliflower was the hottest as they absorbed so much seasoning. Anyways. You may need to play with seasoning and time to find your sweet spot! Hope you enjoy!
