Low Country Boil

Nothing says summer in Savannah like a low country boil with fresh shrimp! I decided that I would make some for my Dad’s birthday. It is really fool-proof! You need a big pot – depending on how many you are serving of course. Fill the pot about 2/3 full with water and add about a cup of old bay seasoning (per serving of 6). Set the water to boil and add red potatoes. Let boil for about 10 minutes and then add kielbasa sausage cut into 2 inch pieces. Let boil for another 10 minutes and then add 1/2 ears of sweet corn (you can use yellow corn but the sweet is so much better). Let boil another 10 minutes and then add 2 1/2 lbs of shrimp (per 6 servings) and cook just until pink. Strain all through colander and sprinkle with more old bay. Serve and eat. I also make a cocktail sauce to accompany. Mix about 1 cup of ketchup with 2 tablespoons of fresh horseradish (more or less to taste) and about a tablespoon of old bay.

I made this not long ago with chicken and it was delicious. It was even better on the Tuna Steak!


I simply salted and lightly peppered the tuna steak. I lit the grill to medium high heat and placed pre-soaked rosemary sprigs on the grill and put the tuna steaks on top of the rosemary. When the steaks were done I removed them and served with grilled asparagus and topped the steaks with the fig sauce found in the previous post.  Delicious! I can’t wait until fig season next year.
