Vidalia Onions-1/2 onion/person

Zattaran's Crab Boil (1 box)

Directions:
Directions:
Place crab boil, lemons, and salt in large pot of boiling water (Follow instructions on crab boil box.) Bring to a rolling boil (the longer the spices boil in the water prior to adding food items, the spicier the "boil" will be.) Add other ingredients in the following order, about 10 minutes apart: sausage, then potatoes, then corn, then onions, and finish with shrimp and crab legs.
Shrimp and Crab legs need to cook just until pink, remove immediately. Do not overcook the shrimp. For those allergic to seafood, or for those who do not like seafood, all ingredients can be
cooked and removed before adding the seafood. We cook it in a pot with a strainer. When done, lift out strainer and pour on a large table covered with newspapers (sometimes a beach towel is used to catch excess liquid). Serve with melted butter, cocktail sauce, tartar sauce, and garlic bread! YUM!
