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!

  • 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.

Tips

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.
