Low Country Boil
6 small red skinned potatoes
4 Tablespoons Cajun seafood seasoning (Old Bay)
3 ears of corn, cut in half
1 lb. smoked sausage, cut into 1” pieces
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled
In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, add potatoes and seasoning. Add enough water to cover potatoes and remaining ingredients. Cover and bring to a boil. Cook potatoes for 5 minutes. Add corn and sausage to pot, cover and return to a boil. Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add shrimp to pot and cook 3-4 minutes or until shrimp are pink. Drain and place everything on a platter. Serve with melted butter and additional Cajun seasoning if desired. Makes 5-6 servings.
Note: Don’t have a strainer when camping? Use pantyhose. Bring a few knee highs to use as cooking bags. Place your potatoes, corn, sausage, and shrimp into separate pieces of pantyhose and tie a knot into the ends. Insert each when it’s time to cook that ingredient. When you are done you just pull out the pantyhose, cut the bottom, and place the food on your table or platter. It strains off the water for you without making a HUGE mess.
Cooking times will vary a little bit depending on the temperature of your fire.
