Low Country Boil

Low Country Boil is a very simple recipe where you can control the spice. I never realized how simple a Low Country Boil could be. Add onions, and other seasonings to your taste to make this dish your own. I've even heard of putting artichokes in this boil.

Here are the ingredients.

6 cut in half ears of corn
6 (4 inch) links smoked sausage
12 cut in half if large red new potatoes

3 lbs unpeeled fresh shrimp
2 teaspoons per quart of water crab boil seasoning

Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Add the crab boil and bring to a boil. Adjust the crab boil to suit your taste. 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 and cook for no more than 3 minutes. Drain and serve with warm bread.
