Low Country Boil


This low country shrimp boil was shared by Janet.


  • See Janet's instructions, below


From Janet in Georgia:
Have a good old southern Low Country Boil. All you need is a huge pot and a gas burner. Put in as many good sized red potatoes as you have people to feed, bring to a boil and turn down a little to cook say 20 minutes. Then add whatever you can fit into the pot easily and leave room. We like small sections of corn on the cob and whole onions and sections of big link sausage (personally we use polish sausage) but any type you like will do, but be sure to add enough for everyone to have seconds. When the potatoes are done make sure the water is just up to the top of the things in the pot and add at least a 1/2 lb of shrimp in the shells to the pot Per person and put on the lid. Turn the heat up and steam the shrimp till pink through and they are done. Don't over cook the shrimp, they will get rubbery. It just takes a few minutes. Remove the shrimp to a tray, the corn & onions to a tray, the potatoes and sausage to a tray and have a happy meal. The oil from the sausage makes the shrimp very easy to peel the shells off. Good Luck. Janet from Georgia.
