  1. Place 25-30 fresh crawfish in boiling water (seasoned with salt or any other seasoning you want) for 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat and let them stand in the hot water for 30 minutes. Strain and set aside. 
  2. Place 2 cups of Quaker Grits into a large sauce pan and add Cajun Seasoning to taste. Add ½ cube of butter and 4 cups of water.
