I made this for the second time this weekend and it was even better. Here are my changes/additions: 3/4 cup Old Bay, 2 bottles of beer, 3 quarts water, about 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 lemon cut in half, a bunch of crushed garlic. Next time I will probably use 3 large onions and might use new potatoes. If you want to add more seafood, you can always reduce the potatoes and corn - they take up a lot of room. Wonderful!
I almost feel bad reviewing this recipe. I followed it to a t and I was soooo looking forward to eating it. It smelt sooooooo good! I LOVE shrimp. but i was disappointed. I am going to try this again but next time I am not going to leave the skins on the shrimp. My shrimp had NO flavor. I threw it all away. Myself and my husband loved the flavor of everything else. the potatoes were Fantastic. I am going to try this again but with a few changes.
What a great and very easy meal to make! I have made this about ten times so far, and is great, AS-IS. I have found that the frozen corn on the cob (ear nibblers), work very well when fresh corn is out of season. I take them out of the freezer, put them into a colander, and rinse under cool water until they are defrosted. When I made this meal this evening, I added 1 more bottle of beer, 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup more water. I then added 1/2 dozen live muscles, 1/2 live baby (small )clams at the same time that I added the corn. When the shells started opening (which took about 6-7 minutes), I added the shrimp and cooked 4 additional minutes. It was wonderful! Please remember to DISCARD any clams or muscles that do not open, as they will make you sick!
My family absolutely loved this one! I made it on a Friday night on vacation; my 9-year-old twin daughters (who were 'starving!') said it was awesome and worth the wait!! I only used 1 lb of smoked sausage, 2 lbs shrimp, 6 frozen cobbettes, and 12 sm-med whole red potatoes, but all the spice and beer as written. When it was over, we had 2 potatoes left.. a definite sign that indeed it is awesome!! Will make many times more..
Most excellent. Couldn't have enough of it.
Great and easy recipe, would be great for summer entertaining. Although, not quite as spicy as I had hoped. Also, potatoes were a tad over-done and corn was a tad under-done. A few minor adjustments and this recipe would be fabulous!
This is similar to a New England Clam boil which I have fixed for my family for years but, this has a whole lot more flavor! My family loved it! This is fast, easy and full of flavor! It was a hit with everyone, even the kids! I will make this again!
The only change I made was to squeeze a bit of fresh lemon over each serving. Every time I make it I wish I had doubled the recipe!
