Ingredients

How to make it

  • Bring Old Bay, salt, water and beer to boil in 8- to 12-quart pot (with basket if you have one) on high heat. Add potatoes and onions; cook 8 minutes.
  • Add smoked sausage to pot; cook 5 minutes. Add corn and clams; cook 7 minutes or until clams open. Add shrimp in shells; cook 4 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
  • Drain cooking liquid. Pour contents of pot into several large bowls, shallow pails or mound on paper-covered picnic table. Sprinkle with additional Old Bay, if desired.
  • Note: Ingredients are added according to the length of cooking time, starting with ingredients that take the longest time to those taking the shorted time. Seasoning is by preference. I tend to go with the larger amount because the flavors need to permeate the shrimp and other ingredients.

    This is a wonderful variation of the lowcountry boil. I love your clam addition here. And I always cook with beer whenever I can...it adds a lovely flavor. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. I'll be trying this soon. It makes me hungry just looking at it. :)
