Seafood boil is one of favorite treat-yourself-meal. As always, I’m sharing it with you all. Let’s walk through step by step and I will show you an easy way to enjoy your seafood with flavors. What I use : Any seafood of your choice( the more the better!) It can be frozen or fresh seafood Corn 🌽 Potatoes 🥔 Shrimp 🦐 Lobster 🦞 Crawfish 🦞 Mussels Sausage Crabs 🦀
Now, before we get into the cooking, I would like to share some of the benefits of seafood with you. This channel wants you to East tasty food, but also healthy food! ‘Tasty and Healthy’ is the goal. Benefits of seafood: • Contains Vitamin A, B and D. • boosts our brain cells. • Seafood is high in protein and low on fat that makes it good for our heart. • Seafood eases joint pain. • Seafood helps maintain good eyesight (vision 20/20). • Seafood can and will give you better skin(added glow). This is me giving out one of my secret for all those who keep asking me how do I maintain this glow, there you have it. #seafood Let’s get into the cooking! Total Prep Time: 60 mins. Servings: 5-6 servings. Cook Time: 45 -60 minutes. INGREDIENTS • 4 Onion • 8 bell pepper (mix the colors) • 6-7 Hot pepper ( spicy 🌶) or you can go without if you’re not into hot and spicy food. SEASONING • 1 ½ tbsp of crabs seasoning • 1 tbsp black pepper. • Two (2) maggi crevette shrimp/ chicken buillon or maggi star crayfish/ Nigerian Maggi. • 1 knorr cubes. • 1 tbsp of badia complete seasoning. • 1 tbsp of Lawry’s all-purpose chicken seasoning. • 6-8 packs of sazon Goya
