Nice! I changed this recipe as follows to serve four: just under ¼ cup Old Bay (instead of the salt and crab boil); 1 lb cooked/frozen jumbo shrimp. Other changes: I cooked the corn in advance, in another pot; I cut the potatoes into quarters. Otherwise, I followed the directions exactly. I had no idea what to expect with so few ingredients – the results were amazing. I had my parents over for dinner & we all LOVED IT. In a nod to tradition, I used newspaper as a tablecloth (but we ate out of bowls and I ate with my fingers). A fun evening!
This was not terrible, but it wasn't great for sure. The lemon made the whole thing taste funny. I doubt I'll make this again.
I love this recipe. I make this all the time, the only thing I do is add crab legs to it. I call it a crab boil. I am always making this for girls nite. I like to serve this with a garlic dipping butter and hot sauce.
this is our favorite summer fire pit meal. we cook it on our fire pit in the backyard. we add in some crab legs and andoulle sausage. it's a big hit with our neighbors and friends.we put 3 onions quartered and 5 garlic cloves and course ground pepper. it's fun to sit outside and cook it with some cold brews. that's how we do it in milwaukee, wi.
I didn't have shrimp on hand. So,I added chunks of chicken breast. Still turned out perfect!
This is an exciting dish to make and eat. The shrimp is enhanced by the garlic and sweetness of the corn. Try it. I know you'll love it!
We made this for forty people and it was a huge hit. Just be aware that some people have shell fish allergies and may need alternate meal. I did use Old Bay Seasoning and fresh from the field sweet corn. I worried about the lemons but they were fine. We may do this annually. It was superb!
This is phenomenal! Yes this is really basic but everything comes together and tastes like you spent all day slaving away. Think of it more as a Southern verison of a clambake rather than a traditional "stew".
Fixed two big pots of this for 4th of July over my grill. Briefly grilled the corn before adding it to the pot. Everyone loved it though be warned it's a bit messy to eat.
