"Being from New Orleans, and being a true 'Cajun cook' I create a lot of my own recipes simply by experimenting. This dip recipe came to me when I decided that adding crab boil to almost anything will make it taste incredible. Everyone that tastes it agrees! It's best when prepared a day ahead of time and reheated. Serve with chicken flavored crackers."

Old Bay and Crab Boil are both almost entirely salt, so that's 2 tablespoons of salt, plus the extra it called for was way too much salt for my taste buds!

being from New Orleans also, I think this is a great basic sauce... I would recommend however that if you are using left over crawfish from a seafood boil, eliminate the crab boil & cajun season...

Loved it I used shrimp instead still good!!

This was awesome! I didn't add the salt but did add a few green onions. This seems too simple to be so good, but just try it and you won't be disappointed.
