4 tablespoons yellow mustard seeds
3 tablespoons coriander seeds
2 tablespoons whole allspice
2 tablespoons dill seeds
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
8 bay leaves
salt and cayenne pepper (or liquid hot sauce) to taste
Combine all dry ingredients thoroughly. Place in a square of muslin or cheesecloth and tie securely with string, like a large sachet d'ipices. Add salt and cayenne or hot sauce to taste.
When water for seafood is boiling, add the bag and boil for several minutes, until the boiling liquid is tinted and seasoned, then add shellfish and cook until done, depending on what you're using.
Yield: Enough crab boil seasoning for 5 pounds of seafood, sausages and vegetables (corn on the cob, red potatoes and whole small onions). You can add whatever you like. the potatoes are the best. Zatarain's Crab Boil is the best ready-mixed seasonings. Just add whatever seafood, meat and vegetables you like.

I forgot to buy packaged crab boil mix when at the store (silly considering I was there to get all the ingredients for the crab boil!!). Decided to look online for a recipe instead of wasting gas and driving 20 minutes back to the store. This worked out great and I'll bet it was cheaper than buying the packaged stuff!

Best resipe ever! I made it with snow crab and king crab with lemon butter on the side. I can't wait to make it again, I just have to buy more crab next time cuz I ate it all. Perfect resipe come fall, with the allspice and cloves. Thank you!
