Quick Bites: Boiling Crawfish with Dr. Boil

Annually, all of Louisiana eagerly anticipates the onset of crawfish season and no one knows more about crawfish than Zatarain’s. After all, they’re the folks who actually invented the seasoning mix we all know as Crab Boil, but is actually used for boiling all sorts of seafood along with an amazing array of other ingredients!


No one knows how to boil crawfish quite like Claude Davis, who also goes by the name Dr. Boil.
Claude is a native New Orleanian who works as a principal scientist for Zatarain’s. That means that Claude not only helps dream up new products, but also maintains the flavor profile of their classic, traditional Louisiana ingredients.


Claude cooked up quite a Louisiana Eats adventure for us when we travelled to Gretna for a sidewalk crawfish boil at the Zatarain’s facility.
