Famous in the Low Country of Georgia and South Carolina. This boil is done best on an outdoor cooker. It has sausage, shrimp, crab, potatoes and corn for an all-in-one pot all-you-can-eat buffet!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®), or to taste
  • 5 pounds new potatoes
  • 3 (16 ounce) packages cooked kielbasa sausage, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 8 ears fresh corn, husks and silks removed
  • 5 pounds whole crab, broken into pieces
  • 4 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat a large pot of water over an outdoor cooker, or medium-high heat indoors. Add Old Bay Seasoning to taste, and bring to a boil. Add potatoes, and sausage, and cook for about 10 minutes. Add the corn and crab; cook for another 5 minutes, then add the shrimp when everything else is almost done, and cook for another 3 or 4 minutes.
  2. 2 Drain off the water and pour the contents out onto a picnic table covered with newspaper. Grab a paper plate and a beer and enjoy!

  1. Killer recipe. The only problem is that you never want to boil corn more than 3 minutes. EXACTLY 3 minutes. Otherwise the sugar in the corn will turn into starch and the corn will be ruined. Drop the shrimp and corn in at exactly the same time and they will be done just right.
  2. I'm sorry but i guess i don't get the whole concept, tried it last night, i added shrimp which made it extreamly expensive but if i would have just stuck to crab and corn it would have been better, nobody eats the potatoes and the taste was just well, plain..i added 2 lemons and onion - Read more ...
  3. Made this tonight for the neighbors and had great reviews. Measured: 1 cup of Old Bay Seasoning. Added: 1 bay leaf, 2 lemons quartered, 2 vidalia onions quartered, 1/2 of a bass pale ale and 1 lb of mussels. Filled a 22 qt pot 40% with water, the dash of bass and added the seasonings - Read more ...
  4. The only MAJOR deviation I've found over the years from the recipe I use is to add the sausage toward the end, just before the shrimp, otherwise the pre-cooked sausage will be overcooked and split apart. Otherwise, a great meal for any occasion! Go Dawgs!!!
  5. Awesome! I used 3/4 cup Old Bay to 6 quarts of water as per the Frogmore Stew recipe. I used turkey kielbasa (to cut down on the fat), shrimp, clams, sea scallops and a baby lobster tail per person. It was to die for! I suggest using a turkey fryer as it has the basket - Read more ...
  6. We added 3 lemons cut in half, 4 onions, a couple of handfuls of garlic cloves & a couple of pounds of littleneck clams (which got lost in the mix so we won't repeat) & followed the rest of the ingredient amounts in recipe. We had 13 adults & 2 children & still had some - Read more ...
  7. My family has always had lo' country boils and it's absolutely the best meal ever! A few "family hints": add 1 or 2 whole lemons (just cut them in half and drop 'em in), 2 or 3 medium size onions(quartered), two datil peppers (these are a florida thang) and leave the heads and shells on - Read more ...
  8. Excellent recipe! We did this last night for a group of people on the deck. I also used the recipe on this website for Frogmore Stew it's similar but gives a better idea of how much Old Bay to use. I cut the corn and potatoes in half so the shrimp wouldn't seem so small!
  9. Warning -- you will eat so much of this you will feel sick!!! Our family version of this recipe includes adding the juice of two lemons, cayenne pepper, cloves, and bay leaves to the water. Oh so good.
