As we come to the close of my favorite season summer, I’m celebrating my Summer Blues with a Low Country Seafood Boil.
I made a Low Country Seafood Boil to celebrate a young friend’s birthday. Like me, seafood is her favorite and a low country boil is a delicious meal. If you love seafood too here’s an easy to make, one pot meal that’s down home, special and a little messy.
In true southern hospitality I dressed my table in summer blue ignoring the messiness. I used a hand dyed indigo blue tablecloth and napkins (my creation) that’s washable.
Here’s my recipe.
Elle’s Low Country Seafood Boil
- Red Potatoes
- Corn on the Cob
- Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 Andouille Sausage link
- 3 lbs Crab legs
- 1.5 lb large Shrimp with head-on
- Clean potatoes and cut in half. Place in pot covered in water and bring to boil. Cook until al dente.
2. Prepare corn by removing from husk, rinsing and cut in half.
3. Assemble all ingredients in a large steam pot layering the longer to cook vegetables deeper in the pot.
4. Sprinkle throughout the layering with Old Bay Seasoning. Add the shrimp at the top of the pot.
5. Cover the pot with a top. Cook at a medium heat for about 20 minutes until the seafood turns pink.
6. Set your table while the seafood is cooking. I always add moist paper towels on the table because you’ll probably need them.
Now you’re ready to eat!
I hope you’re enjoying your end to summer wherever you are.
Until next time …
