Some FINE food

Kelly's always giving out great recipes... I was at a fantastic dinner at a friend's house tonight and had som "Low Country Shrimp Boil". WOW! She's from South Carolina, and I guess that is the "low country". She made these with shrimp we bought from the Fresh Market sold as:

I loved the dish and especially loved that we didn't peel the shrimp, but cooked it all up raw in a 10 quart pot, and everything was pretty much finger food! Enjoy, if you try it!

Low Country Shrimp Boil


6 qts. water
3/4 C Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 C white vinegar
2 T salt
2# new red potatoes, cut in half
2# Andouille sausage links, cut into 2 inch pieces
12 ears corn, husked, cleaned and cut into thirds
4# Wild American Shrimp (they were as big individually as the corn 1/3's

Bring water, Old Bay, vinegar and salt to a boil. Add potatoes and sausage and boil 10 minutes; add corn and cook about 7 minutes til corn is tender/ Stir in shrimp and cook until pink (5 min)

Drain and serve with melted butter.

POST SCRIPT: A good friend of mine advises that this is best with a couple of cold six packs in the fridge, and not to forget you can add a half bottle of beer to this pot with great results!!!

I'm sorry, but I don't like seafood (with the exception of tuna or salmon from a can).

I've tried and tried over the years, but....

I'm glad to see someone else posting recipes, though!!
