Low Country Boil

This is a family favorite. You can increase the recipe as you see necessary for gatherin's. Usually you would just throw this on a table covered in newspaper and let everyone dig in instead of using plates. Crawfish can be used instead of shrimp.


* 1 (3 ounce) package crab boil seasoning, in the bag
* 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
* 2 tablespoons seasoning salt
* 1 medium onion
* 1-2 lb red potatoes
* 4 baby sweet corn cobs
* 1 lb pre-cooked kielbasa or andouille sausage
* 1 lb uncooked shrimp


Boil a large pot of water, add the crab boil seasoning, the Old Bay seasoning and the Seasoning salt.

Peel your onion and put it in the pot whole, along with your potatoes.

Simmer for 30 minutes.

Add your corn and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.

Add your shrimp and sausage and cook until shrimp are done, about 5 minutes, shrimp will be pink and opaque, don't overcook.

Drain and serve.


  1. Thanks for stopping by and visitin' my blog - I SO TOTALLY LOVE YOUR'S!! I was actually just thinking about a shrimp boil this morning - my hubs goes out on the shrimp boat with his daddy every season opener and we stock up the freezer, but I always save some and boil them that same day. I'm ready to run down to the seafood market and get some shrimp just for boilin'!! I'm following you on blogger so I'll definitely be back! I see some familiar and good stuff here - YUM!


  2. I would like all of this except the shrimp...or the crawfish, never had one but they look too much like a shrimp. We used to poke their holes with sticks down in the creek where we played as youngin's.

    I had a gal that I worked with in Texas for 5 years and she would go to Louisiana for crawfish boils and eat herself silly! ;D
