Copycat Hot N Juicy Boil~ Let’s get your hands dirty!!!

I just tried this recipe another time and made it a little differently this time. Still LOVE this recipe!! Updates are at the bottom. Check it out!! 🙂

09/12/2015 Update Hot N Juicy Boil Part II

So… over the weekend I tried this recipe again but made a little adjustment to it. Taste even better!!

Ingredient-wise: It’s a total upgrade. 🙂 I used snow crabs, blue crabs, shrimps, some potatoes, and bell peppers. You gotta grasp as many crabs before the crab season is over, right?

Sauce-wise: I substitute half of butter into olive oil. Not only for the health reason, but also taste lighter and better. I like this version much better. I won’t get tired of the taste after just a couple bites. Also, I bought a “Cajun seasoning.” My ingredients for the garlic butter cajun boil sauce this time is:

  • 1-2 sticks of butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 heads of fresh garlic minced
  • Cajun Seasoning
  • Red chili powder
  • Paprika powder
  • Old bay seasoning
  • Lemon pepper
  • Sugar

Just to be safe, add the lemon pepper and cajun seasoning little by little to adjust the taste. They have strong pungent flavor so you don’t want it to overpower the taste.

For the boil, I still use cajun seasoning and one lemon. When the seafood is cooked, drain the water and pour over your spicy garlic butter sauce. YumYum!!! What a happy friday. 🙂

Absolutely LOVE this recipe!!!! Recommendation: 100% Must Try

After our last visit to Hot N Juicy, me and J kept thinking about the savory, hot, buttery taste of those shrimps. Occasionally we found this video tutoring how to make copycat version of Hot N Juicy cajun boil and garlic butter sauce. It seems not difficult at all!!! And the best part is when making your own Hot N Juicy boil at home, you get to choose what to put include in your meal, the quality of seafood, and you can tweak the taste as much as you want~~~ (Best of all, it’s a lot cheaper LOL)
