How to Prepare Crawfish:
Crawfish are PERISHABLE and should be cooked the same day received.
To Care For Live Crawfish: If you are not going to cook the crawfish immediately, you must do the following! 1. When you receive your crawfish take the sack(s) out of the box and hose the whole sack off in your back yard or in a large sink. Do not take the crawfish out of the sack, leave them in the sack and hose the entire sack with fresh water. Do not leave the sack submerged in water, as the crawfish are restricted in the sack and will drown.
2. Place the sack(s) back into the box & lay a bag of ice loosely on top of the crawfish sack(s) and close the box.
3. Leave the box in a cool damp area such as your garage/cellar or kitchen. If you live in an area where the temperature does not exceed 50 degrees then you may leave the box outside. However, dampen the crawfish first. Do not leave the crawfish outside if the temperature is freezing level or below!

Wash crawfish thoroughly with running water, removing any that are crushed.
Fill a large pot with enough water to cover crawfish. Add LA Crawfish Co. powdered seasoning mix to the water. One lb. of crawfish boil will cook approximately 15 lbs of crawfish. The powdered premixed seasoning contains salt, lemon, onion, garlic, and many other spices needed for real “Cajun flavor”. Bring water to a rolling boil.
Place crawfish in water, cover, return water to a boil, & boil approx. 1- 2 minutes. Turn off fire & let crawfish soak for 15-20 minutes depending on the amount of spices desired.
Prepare vegetables while crawfish are soaking. The standard favorites are corn-on-the-cob and potatoes. However we suggest you also try mushrooms, carrots, whole onions, whole garlic, and any others of your choice. Boil the vegetables in the water after removing the crawfish, keeping in mind they will not take long to cook and they soak up the spices quickly. Start the potatoes first and add the others right before the potatoes are almost fork tender.
Remove crawfish from water and place in an ice chest. The box the crawfish are shipped in works great for this purpose! Place a 2" layer of crawfish then sprinkle an even layer of LA Crawfish Co. Creole Seasoning & a layer of salt (if desired). Continue layering crawfish and seasoning until all crawfish are in the chest.
Place the lid tightly on the chest and let the crawfish steam approximately 15 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the vegetables. (Optional)LA Crawfish Co. Creole Seasoning or more of the Seafood Boil may be sprinkled on top of the crawfish if desired for spicier Cajun flavor!
Help yourself and enjoy Louisiana’s finest delicacy!!!

LACrawfish saved my life!

Review by Jeff P on 7/2/2020

Ok, maybe not literally, but as Texas redneck who now lives in California, it is almost impossible to find live crawfish. There is one fish market almost an hour away but they rarely have them and they are not the same species of crawfish. Even when they do they are so small its a joke, and they taste of them do not satisfy the craving. I placed my first order the other day and had almost no dead ones in the sack. The size was unexpectedly large and they taste so much better than the ones I can get out here. LACrawfish Co... THANK YOU!!!

Great 1st Experience

Review by Michael on 6/6/2019

Ordered 25lbs of the live field run for a get together. I must be close to the FedEx Depot because they arrived before 10 am on the delivery date! I then loaded them up and drove another 3 1/2 hours north. When we got ready to purge there was only 5 dead! The size of the field run crawfish we're bigger than I expected also! Will definitely be ordering from you again! Thank you!

Live means live!

Best place to get live crawfish!

Review by Yeon Jin on 2/23/2018

I ordered 15 lbs of live field run crawfish a while back, but didnt get a chance to write a review until now. The crawfish were all alive with only a few dead which was completely expected but even for a field run the crawfish were decent sized and thriving all the way here to NY and then some. This place is amazing and I'm going to keep ordering more in the future! They were delicious and fresh!
