Brab boil is a mix used here for Shrimp, Crawfish and crabs, and sometimes used as a seasoning in other stuff too,.. generally, the liquid types are concentrates, and there are some powder mixes available too,,

I will look and see if I can find a mix type you can blend yourself.

When I was in Malaysia, I saw some of our stuff there for example. "Tabasco sauce"

so keep your eyes out in the seasonings for "Zatarains Crab Boil" or "Cajunland Crab and Shrimp Boil"

Here is another popular Cajun seasoning mix
=====
Use this one like Salt and Pepper

CAJUN SEASONING

1 box salt
3T black pepper
2T garlic powder
1t onion powder
1t nutmeg
2T parsley flakes (crunched)
4T red pepper (ground) (cayenne)
2T chili powder

Combine all ingredients; store in an airtight container.

====

Seafood Boil for Shrimp, Crab, Crawfish


Ingredients :

1/4 cup Mustard seeds
2 tbl Black peppercorns
2 tbl Hot red pepper flakes
6 x Bay leaves
1 tbl Celery seeds
1 tbl Coriander seeds
1 tbl Ground ginger
1/4 tsp Ground mace
1/4 cup Salt

Method :

# Place all ingredients except the salt in a blender and blend until evenly ground. Add the salt and blend briefly to incorporate the salt into the seasonings. Store in well-sealed jars in a cool, dark, dry place.
# Allow 1/2 T mix for each quart of water, plus half a lemon. For shrimp you will need a quart of water per pound of shrimp.
