No crab boil for me!
by Linda T.
I truly dislike the flavor of crab or shrimp boil, something is just plain ol' off about it. I start with making normal boiled peanuts, salt-water, and add a few chicken bouillon cubes, onion and garlic. As they get close to done, I add heat- cayenne (red) pepper, dried pepper flakes, fresh jalapenos or datil peppers, at least one habanero. Taste. Sometimes I'll toss in Chipotle tabasco - yummy smoked flavor! Not many eat food as hot spicy as I do, so I make a separate batch that kicks it up a notch.
