Crab Boil

Cajuns call it Crab Boil, but crawfish play a role as well, simmered with potatoes and corn on the cob. For fun and for easy cleanup, serve this the traditional way, on newspapers.

From the Test Kitchen

Before cooking crawfish soak them in salted water to reduce the size of the black vein that runs down the backs of the tails.
