One pot is all you need for this easy Low-Country boil. We added green beans to the classic combination of potatoes, corn, shrimp and sausage to boost the veggie servings for a healthier crowd-pleasing meal. Dump the whole potful out on newspaper and serve with melted butter for dipping and crusty bread to round it all off!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water, Old Bay, mustard seeds, coriander seeds, cayenne, dill seed, allspice and bay leaves in a large stockpot. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes and sausage and boil until the potatoes are almost tender, 18 to 20 minutes.

  • Add shrimp, green beans, corn and onions and boil until the shrimp are pink and the vegetables are tender-crisp, 5 to 6 minutes more. Drain and serve with butter (or ghee) for dipping.


Tip: For sustainably raised shrimp, look for shrimp that's certified by an independent agency, such as the Marine Stewardship Council. If you can't find it, choose wild-caught shrimp from North America--it's more likely to be sustainably caught.

This is what Low Country Boil should always taste like perfect recipe. I substituted four cans of beer for the water doubled the recipe and added two additional pound's of Italian Sausage. Jersey Fresh corn potatoes and string beans were excellent and the seasonings were perfect. I would definitely make this again. The suggestion to serve bread and melted butter Old School are a step not to be missed. I fed six adults and four children and had leftovers. Love this you will not be disappointed. Read More

There is a sequence for the ingredients. I serves 12 4 1/2 Tbs seafood boil (Old Bay Seasoning) 2 1/4 gallons water 2-3 Lb smoked beef sausage cut into 2 inch pieces 18 ears of corn shucked and cut into 5 inch pieces 6 lb shrimp (large is the best) In a large pot add seafood boil to water and bring to a boil. Add the sausage and potatoes boil uncovered for 6 minutes. Add the corn. 5 minutes later add the shrimp. 3 minutes later drain and serve immediately. ( do not wait for the water to reboil after adding the corn potatoes or shrimp - both will be overcooked). If any shrimp are left peel them and serve over the grits on Sunday. Read More

Great meal. I didn't have all the spices but this came out very tasty. The shrimp will overcook so maybe add them a couple of minutes later. Read More

This was so delish and so easy. I used quartered sweet onion instead of the pearl onions and fennel seed instead of dill seed it came out great. Read More
