Soup-er Sunday was last week. And yes, we did have soup – a simple beef stew. There truly was nothing magical about the recipe so I didn’t post on it last week. However, this week was Super Bowl Sunday and I wanted to try my hand at something a little different.
The Daughter in-Love and Lil Man are back in Wisconsin for a funeral, the Son was home repairing the walls in his home after a full re-pipe needed to be done – so it was just the elder generations of the family. I called my folks and asked if they wanted to come over to watch the commercials, since none of us are really football fans – nor did we really care who won this particular game (although, it ended up being quite an amazing game!).
Enter my first attempt at a Low Country Shrimp Boil. Honestly – this was a dish I looked at and thought…it’s perfect for winging it! Given that the Sprouts down the road had bags of new potatoes on sale, I just jumped in! Here is my version of a Low Country Shrimp Boil.
Stacy Mac’s Low Country Shrimp Boil
2 pounds uncooked shrimp (deveined, peeled and tail on…I used frozen as the fresh were not looking so great)
2 packages Andouille Sausage, sliced
3 pounds new potatoes, washed and left whole
6 ears of corn, shucked, cleaned and cut into quarters
3 lemons, washed and halved
Old Bay seasoning for the boil (I used about ¼ cup for the pot)
