Warmer weather makes me think of fresh & easy recipes that you’d want to eat outside with friends, on the deck, with a cold beer in hand! This Low Country Boil definitely fits the bill!
1.5 lbs potatoes (cut in half)
2 cups of water
1 can of beer
Seafood Seasoning…as directed on the package
1 onion, cut into quarters
3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 lb pre-cooked kielbasa/polish sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
4 cobs of corn, cut into 3-inch chunks
2 lb uncooked large shrimp in shells
2 lemons cut in half
Optional : Cocktail sauce, fresh lemon slices, Cajun seasoning
Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray.
Add water, beer & seafood seasoning. Stir.
Place potatoes, onions, garlic and lemon in crockpot. (Squeeze the lemon first into the beer broth).
Cook on low 2-3 hours.
Add corn and sausage and cook another 2 hours.
Add shrimp and cook another 45 minutes until shrimp are pink.
Pull all your goodies out with a slotted spoon and serve on platters.
*Some people like to serve this dish on newspaper. And that’s fine if you like fish-scented liquid mess everywhere. But I don’t. So I won’t.
*Dont think for one second that you can just dump all your ingredients in the crockpot together at the same time to make this dish, because you can’t. Both your potatoes and your shrimp will be obliterated into a soggy mess. I know this because I did it.
Other than that…
Enjoy your low country boil!! It’s so good! 🙂
