Question & Answer: How many crawfish should I need per person for my crawfish boil?

We think it depends on where your boil will be held. If you’re boiling in a crawfish-friendly area like south Louisiana where lots of people enjoy mudbugs, we would suggest five to seven pounds per person. Out of state, you’ll probably be safe planning on three to five pounds per person. Keep in mind that all the extras like corn, potatoes, sausage, mushrooms and onions can take the pressure off of your crawfish supply and make sure your costs don’t leave hungry.
