True Southern Food

Thursday, August 7, 2008

Last weekend, we got together with the Dale's (Roy's best friend Amber's parents) and celebrated Amber's sisters Master's in Education graduation. This, being another excuse to hang out with one of our favorite families, made the day even better. We played in the pool with all the kids, had a cornhole tournament with my BRAND NEW set custom made by my boyfriend for my birthday, and to top it off, the night featured a new favorite of mine, a Low Country Boil recipe made famous by Paula Deen. With her stuff, you know you can't go wrong. I thought it was so creative and very easy to make, so here's the recipe... it works great for a summer cookout with lots of people, too!

Crab boil (AKA Old Bay Seasoning and LOTS of it)
2 teaspoons per quart of water
12 red new potatoes
6 (4-inch) smoked sausage link sausage
6 ears corn
3 pounds fresh shrimp, unpeeled (we left peels on, and it was easy to get them off once cooked)
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.
