Description

Low Country—and this is my own definition—is the lower coastal region of South Carolina and the Georgia Coast. Think of Charleston and Savannah ya’ll and all the great seafood you can get there with all the cultural influence of those areas thrown in! Now that’s Low Country cookin’!

This is dish that is easy to make and feeds a crowd. You can change the seafood lineup depending on what you find.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ pound New Potatoes
  • 16 ounces, weight Package Andouille Sausage (kielbasa Works Too)
  • 3 ears Fresh Corn, Husked Removed And Cut Into Bite Size Disks
  • 4 whole Lemons, Quartered
  • 1 whole Old Bay Shrimp/crab Boil Seasoning Packet
  • 2 pounds Medium To Large Shrimp, Deveined And Peeled

Preparation

Bring the potatoes, sausage, corn, lemons, and Old Bay Crab Boil packet to a boil and keep on a rolling boil for 25–30 minutes or until the potatoes and corn are tender (boil them longer the larger the batch). Bring the boil to a very low simmer and add the shrimp and cook for the last 5 minutes or until they are pink. Once the shrimp are pink, remove from heat and drain the water.

This dish is great for an outdoor party where you can line a picnic table with newspapers, throw the boil on the table, and tell everyone to dig in! Keep butter, hot sauce, and more Old Bay or your favorite bayou seasoning at hand for additional flavor.

I like to serve mine with additional Old Bay style seasoning. My new favorite is Todd’s Crabby Dirt Seasoning. It has a more pungent and fresh tasting flavor than Old Bay or Zattarain’s and has NO MSG!

When I make this, we throw in scallops and large mushrooms, too. Also, we use paper bags, or large lawn and leaf bags cut open and spread on a table. Newspaper gets too wet and rips and gets on the food. Excellent Recipe!
