This one-pot dish is loaded with smoked sausage, plump shrimp, summer corn, and tender potatoes. Try it for your next get-together.
Originating in the beautiful South Carolina Low Country, this seafood dish is a combination of shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. A seafood boil is also tied to Louisiana, often with more spice and crawfish, while the further east coast variety may tend to be a bit milder and involve more shrimp. I love a good Low Country Boil because it is so easy for a big crowd of people, and makes a great beach vacation dinner with a fresh catch right off the boat.
A spread of Low Country Boil is typically served right on top of a layer of the local newspaper with a side of cocktail sauce if you please. It is also great with a little melted butter and hot sauce.
Whatever sauce you choose, keep in mind that this recipe can be a bit messy — I stand by using newspaper to line the tables and for you to go with the freshest seafood option you can get.
Low Country Boil is just the most classic family style meal. I would love to know anything special you add to your country boil. Let me know in the comments below!
