Low Country Shrimp Boil

Tim and I just got back from a vacation in South Carolina.  Charleston was hot and sticky, but filled with history and great food.  We tried a few "low country" dishes, so when I found a low country recipe in the July 2014 Family Circle magazine, I decided to give it a go.  It was a pretty simple recipe and tasted great.


3 pounds red potatoes
1 1/2 pound kielbasa, sliced into 2 inch pieces
4 ears of corn, shucked and halved
1/4 cup seafood seasoning (I used Old Bay) plus more for seasoning later
3 pounds shrimp

Place potatoes and kielbasa in the bottom of a large stock pot.  Add 5 quarts of cold water , stir in seasoning, put on the lid and bring to a boil.  Boil for 15 minutes.  Take off cover add corn and cook for 10 additional minutes.  Finally add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes more.  Drain.  Sprinkle with more seasoning and enjoy!
