  • Passed down from generation to generation, the low country shrimp boil is best enjoyed outdoors with friends. Cleanup is minimal if you skip plates and serve on paper-covered tables. Just drain the shrimp and pile high where everyone can dig in. Peel, eat and be merry.


  • 1/2 cup OLD BAY Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 quart water
  • 1 can (12 ounces) beer (optional)
  • 8 medium red potatoes, cut in quarters
  • 8 ears fresh corn, cut in half
  • 4 pounds large shrimp in shells


  1. In an 8-quart pot, bring OLD BAY, salt, water and beer to boil on high heat. Add potatoes. Cook 13 minutes.
  2. Add corn. Continue to cook 7 minutes. Add shrimp. Cook 4 minutes.
  3. Drain and dump contents in the center of a paper-covered picnic table. (Contents of pot can also be divided into several large bowls or buckets.) Sprinkle additional OLD BAY over the top for finger-licking flavor.
