Low Country Boil

Don’t be afraid to get creative! Add whatever floats your boat. Spicy or sweet sausages, clams, lobsters, calamari etc. Make it completely your own. That’s the fun of a boil, it can be as easy and laid back or as extravagant as you want it. I like to serve this on newspaper for easy cleanup, but you do you!

For a party full of adults pick your favorite seafoods and try portioning this way per person:

  • 1 1/2 pounds crab legs (10 minutes)
  • 1 whole crab (20 minutes)
  • 1/4 pound shrimp (7 minutes)
  • 1 pound mussels (7 minutes)
  • 1 pound crawfish (7 minutes)
  • 1 pound clams (7 minutes)
  • 1/4 pound calamari (5 minutes)
  • 1 pound lobster tails (10 minutes)
  • 1/4 pound sausage (5 minutes)
  • 3 potatoes (20 minutes)
  • 1 cob of corn (5 minutes)

  • 6 bottles gluten free beer/beer of your choice OR 1 bottle dry white wine
  • 4 heads garlic (halved)
  • 4 lemons (halved)
  • 1 orange (halved)
  • 4 onions (large, quartered)
  • ½ cup onion powder
  • ¼ cup dill seed
  • ¼ cup celery seed
  • 1 cup hot sauce
  • 4 sticks butter (divided)
  • 1 cup old bay
  • ½ cup chili powder
  • ½ cup paprika
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 8 bay leaves
  • ¼ cup coriander seeds
  • cup mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp whole cloves
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 12 Qts water
  • 10 lemons (for serving)
  • 1 container old bay (for serving)
  • In a large pot ( I use a 24 Quart stock pot) add all ingredients except seafood and reserve two sticks of butter for dipping.
  • Fill the pot half way to three quarters full depending upon the amount of seafood you intend to boil.
  • Bring to a boil, and allow to stay at a roiling boil for about 20 minutes. If you're using as large a pot as I do this will take quite a bit of time, around 30 minutes.
  • Once the pot has boiled and the seasonings have melded together add your ingredients according to their cook times.

Did you make this recipe? I'd love to see it!
