Whats for dinner? One Pot Low Country Shrimp Boil

In the mood for a low country boil but don't want to dust off your large stainless steel pot, and burner, and can't quite find your propane tank in the garage?

Here's a great low country boil, made from INSIDE the kitchen!

Step 1. Decide how many people you're planning to feed, then multiply how many people by the below ingredients.

Shrimp: 1/2 a pound (per person)
Red Potatoes: 2-3 (per person)
Large Onion: 1/2 (per person) - cut into wedges
Corn: 1 (per person) - corn should be shucked and can be cut in half
*Sausage: 1 (per person)
Crab Legs: 1 (per person)
Old Bay Shrimp & Crab Boil Bag** (or two if you like things very spicy)

Step 2. Bring a large pot (that will fit all of your ingredients) of water to a boil with the lemon (sliced in half), Crab Boil Bags and salt... depending on how strong of the boil flavor you'd like, add extra bags.  I typically use 1 for a large pot for 3-4 people.

Step 3.  Add potatoes and onions (and if you're including sausage, add it first here too)
Cook for 20 minutes

Step 4. Add corn
Cook 5 minutes

Step 5. (Optional) Add Crab legs, cook for 5 minutes

Step 5. Add your shrimp
Cook for about 2-3 minutes until the shrimp is done.

Total cook time: 32-33 minutes

Drain & Enjoy!

If you add CRAB LEGS to your boil, put them in 5 minutes after the corn goes in... they should only boil for about 7-8 minutes

*Make sure your sausage is Gluten Free if you have sensitivity - I do not use sausage in my recipe but a traditional boil does
