Simpatico: Low Country Boil

Simpatico

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Low Country Boil

Last weekend I had a couple friends around for a Low Country Boil. If you've never had one, well you just haven't lived. Its not a terribly complicated thing to make. It's quite informal. It's just delicious and a great way to spend a hot country day.

Most important part of the meal is the turn out onto paper. Most use newspaper, but as I haven't touched a real newspaper in years, I had to use white craft paper. You eat with your fingers for the most part, but I do provide forks for those who are a bit weirded out.

Low Country Boil
Crab Boil in a Bag (I use Zatarain's)
12 red new potatoes
1 pound smoked sausage link sausage, cut into 4-inch pieces
6 ears corn
3 pounds fresh seafood, any combination of crab and/or shrimp deveined but in the shell)

Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Add the crab boil and bring to a boil. When the water boils, add the potatoes and sausage. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Add corn and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Add shrimp or other seafood and cook for no more than 3 minutes. Drain and serve with warm bread, clarified butter and lemon.

Best part about this dish it can be adjusted to feed a few or many.
