You Can Buy Frozen Seafood Boils at Aldi and Our Mouths Are Watering for Cajun Spices
There's nothing like spreading out the newspaper, bringing all those pots of water to a boil, and setting up shop for a shrimp or crawfish boil to enjoy under the hot Southern sun, preferably with a refreshing beer or glass of sweet tea. But sometimes, life gets in the way, and let's be honest, preparing a seafood boil from scratch can be a lot of work.
Well, it's time to meet your new best friend, your partner in crime, your antidote to just-another-Saturday-afternoon in coronavirus quarantine: Aldi is now selling Fremont Fish Market Seafood Boil in the frozen food aisle for $9.99 (Fremont Fish Market is a seafood brand exclusive to Aldi). Yes, you have that right, you can now get all the victuals you need for a seafood boil in a handy frozen package for under $10.
We can almost taste the Cajun spices already. Ready to eat? The meal comes together in about 10 minutes, you simply pour, boil, and add seasoning. Each package contains raw shrimp, corn on the cob, mussels, red skin potatoes, andouille sausage, and a Cajun-style seasoning packet. If you're feeling fancy, cut up a few lemons and serve the wedges on the side for each person to squeeze over their plate, or pages of newspaper.
This product was released on June 24, as part of the weekly Aldi Finds program, so keep in mind that availability is limited and may differ by location. (Speaking of Aldi Finds, did we mention how much we love these recently debuted food-themed pool floats for only $5.99?)

In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, summer is shaping up to be very different than what we're used to, but we're grateful for every chance to restore a sense of normalcy with warm weather traditions—one satiating bite of corn at a time.
