|In the pot|
This was my first time making it, usually we have a crowd over and someone else does the cooking. So I went online to my southern cooking specialist, Paula Deen, and got her recipe. It was so easy.
Here's her recipe:
Old Bay Crab Boil, 2 teaspoons per quart of water
red new potatoes
smoked sausage link sausage
Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Add the Old Bay Crab Boil and bring to a boil. Adjust the Crab Boil to suit your taste. When the water boils, add the potatoes and sausage. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Add corn and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Add shrimp and cook for no more than 3 minutes. Drain and serve with warm bread.
I took out the amounts she put in because she was cooking for a crowd and I was just making it for Mac and me. I used about 3 quarts of water, 10 small red potatoes, whatever sausage Mac had in the refrigerator, 2 ears of corn broke in half, Vidalia onion cut in half and about a 1/2 pound of frozen shrimp.
I cooked it just exactly as she said and it turned out perfectly. What a great meal to start the Summer with.
