Do you have a recipe for Southern Boil?

My family had visited Georgia a couple of years ago, and we stopped at a restaurant and I had what I believe was called Southern Boil. I loved it, I've been looking all over for a recipe for it, with no luck. I remember there was seafood, corn on the cob and potatoes in it and sausage. Oh it was so good. Would you happen to have a recipe for it?

Thank you,

Hey there!

It sounds like what you are looking for is called a Low Country Boil or Frogmore Stew. It was made famous in the low country of Georgia and South Carolina. It is a seafood dish that is a combination of shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. Some folks also include crab or crawfish. Usually served spread out on newspapers.

Lowcountry Boil

4 pounds new potatoes

1 (3-ounce) bag of crab boil seasoning

4 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning

2 pounds kielbasa or hot smoked link sausage, cut into 1½-inch pieces

6 ears of corn, halved

4 pounds large fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined optional

5 pounds of whole crab, broken into pieces (optional)

Cocktail sauce

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes, sausage and seasonings. Cover pot and return to a rolling boil; cook 10 minutes. Add corn and crab. Return to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Add shrimp and cook another 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Drain. Serve with cocktail sauce, melted butter and lemons.
