Greeting from the South Carolina coast! It’s known as the Lowcountry, and the Shrimp Boil is an easy meal to prepare in one pot for a large group of people. The way it is served here is without plates and utensils, you put newspaper down on the table and pour the contents of the pot down the middle and everyone partakes with their hands. My guy struggles with this one because he can’t stand to have his hands dirty, I love this recipe because my hands are rarely clean.
Lowcountry Shrimp Boil
5 lbs. new potatoes
3 lbs cooke kielbasa or smoked sausage
8 ears of fresh corn on the cob (halved)
5 lbs whole crab, broken into pieces
4 lbs fresh shrimp, uncooked, peeled
2 c Old Bay Seasoning
3 lemons, sliced
3 onions, coarsely chopped
Heat the biggest pot of water you can, add Old Bay seasoning and bring to a boil. Add potatoes, lemons and onions and cook for 10 minutes.

Drain the water and pour over the nearest table.
