Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all dry ingredients (except salt) in a square of cheesecloth and tie with string.
  2. Bring a large pot of water (enough for about 4 pounds of seafood) to a boil, add the bag of seasoning, salt and cayenne pepper or hot sauce.
  3. At this point, I also like to add one lemon, sliced, and 4 to 6 cloves of garlic, slivered or sliced.
  4. Let the seafood boil liquid simmer for at least 30 minutes or until water is tinted and seasoned.
  5. Add seafood or vegetables, and cook until done.
  6. Drain and ENJOY!
