Low Country Shrimp Boil

This Low Country Shrimp Boil is perfect for large outdoor gatherings! Sweet onions, corn, potatoes, sausage and shrimp come together for an all-you-can-eat buffet.

  • 3 ½ Gallon Water
  • ½ Cup Salt
  • 1 ½ Tbs Old Bay Crab Boil
  • ¼ Cup creole seasoning
  • 2 tbs Hot Sauce
  • 1 stick butter
  • ½ cup White Vinegar
  • 1 Lemons quartered
  • 3 lbs Country-Style smoked sausage
  • 2 lbs RealSweet® sweet onions
  • 4 lbs New Red Potatoes, washed
  • 8-9 Ears Fresh Sweet Corn, halved
  • 5 lbs Large Shell-On Shrimp (21-30ct), rinsed
  • 4-5 lbs of Ice
  1. In 5-gal stockpot with basket, combine first eight ingredients and bring to a rapid boil.
  2. Meanwhile, cut sausage links into 2-3” pieces and roast in pre-heated oven at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes, stirring twice; this is optional, but renders much of the fat out and adds a richer flavor.
  3. Add sausage and onions to water and bring back to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes.
  4. Add red potatoes and corn, and boil for 15 minutes.
  5. Add shrimp and remove from heat after 3 minutes (not necessarily waiting for a boil). Immediately add Ice.
  6. Stir and allow to soak for 10-15 minutes (the longer the soak time, the spicer the flavor).
