  • 2 Fresh lobster
  • 400 g Crawfish
  • 100 g Oysters
  • 400 g Shrimp
  • 400 g Kielbasa sausage
  • 1 lbs Red potatoes
  • 4 Corn on the cob
  • 50 g Warm butter
  • 1 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 tsp cajun seasoning


  • In LARGE stock pots, bring water to a boil with a few teaspoons of salt.
  • Once it is boiling, add the red potatoes and cook 8-9 minutes. Keep the potatoes in the water and cooking while you continue to add the next ingredients.
  • Add sliced kielbasa sausage and lobsters one at a time. Cook 8 minutes per pound of your average, not total, lobster weight.
  • So if you have lobsters that are 1.5 lbs, cook 12 minutes.
  • Five minutes into your lobsters cooking, add the clams either tied in a cheesecloth or placed in a steamer basket so as to keep the meat inside once they open.
  • During the last 5 minutes of your lobsters cooking, add the corn on the cob.
  • Once lobsters are done, remove them and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
  • Drain the remainder of ingredients and pour hot onto the newspaper and sprinkle with chipotle and Old Bay seasonings.
  • Serve right away with warm butter.
