Old-Fashioned Shrimp Boil

Plenty of shrimp and sausage make our Old Fashioned Shrimp Boil one to remember. Try serving it like they did in the South: drained of the liquid and spread out over a table covered in newspaper. Don't forget to save the broth for dipping!

What You'll Need:
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 bottles (12-oz. each) of light beer
  • 2 tablespoons seafood seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 pound kielbasa sausage, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 6 red potatoes, cut in half
  • 6 onions, peeled and cut in half
  • 3 ears corn, cut into 3-inch pieces
  • 1 pound shrimp, unpeeled
What To Do:
  1. In a 6-qt. soup pot, combine water, light beer, seafood seasoning, salt, cayenne pepper and garlic, and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Add the sausage, potatoes, onions, and corn. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  3. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and cooked through.
  4. Strain the stew, reserving the broth for dunking, and serve immediately, along with bowls of the broth.

Very unhealthy----way too much salt/sodium!!!

Seriously? I don't believe 1/2 teaspoon is way too much!!!. Especially diluted in the water and other ingredients.
