Low Country Shrimp Boil

Posted by

I am missing the Carolinas already, so I decided to make Carolina Low Country Shrimp Boil for dinner. Here is my favorite recipe:

4 quarts (16 cups) of water

½ cup Old Bay seasoning

2 TBSP salt

8 medium red potatoes, quartered

2 large onions cut into wedges

2 pounds smoked sausage cut into 2 inch pieces

8 pieces of corn on the cob (I use the 2 inch frozen pieces)

1 bag cooked, frozen shrimp (feel free to use fresh!)

Bring water, salt, and seasoning to a boil in a 12-quart stockpot on high heat. Add potatoes and onions. Cook 8 minutes. Add smoked sausage. Cook 5 minutes. Add corn. Cook 7 minutes. Add shrimp. Cook 4 minutes (if using fresh shrimp, cook until pink).

Drain cooking liquid and pour contents of pot into a large serving bowl or platter. Add butter to corn and potatoes if desired. Enjoy!

And for dessert . . . This is a variation of my Ice Cream S’more recipe:

Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwich

1 graham cracker broken in half (or two of any other type cookie you desire)

Spread whipped cream cheese on each graham cracker or cookie.

Flatten 1 scoop of pumpkin pie ice cream onto one of the crackers or cookies.

Add a squirt of Ready Whip or Cool Whip on top of ice cream.

Place the other cracker or cookie on top and enjoy!
