I’m a chef – I tested Aldi’s seafood boil and there’s a reason a meal doesn’t come in a bag

IF you’re an Aldi fan, skip the seafood boil.

At least according to chef Candice.

The seafood boil comes packed with goodies.

It has raw shrimp, corn on the cob, mussels, red skin potatoes, andouille sausage, and a cajon-style seasoning packet.

The cooking process

To get started, she boiled hot water and added onions and sliced lemons.

The TikToker also used the Louisiana brand Crawfish Shrimp & Crab Boil seasoning as well as the OG Seafood Seasoning, made by the chef herself.

She then put a tablespoon of Zatarain’s Shrimp & Crab Boil sauce and added some chicken bouillon.

She then instructed her followers to put the top on and let it boil.

Next, she added the frozen seafood boil package from Aldi.

Her thoughts – while the package comes packed with food, it’s not worth the buy.

She said in the video that Aldi “gets an A for effort, but an E for ew.”
