Low Country Boil | The Sportsman’s Table

We’re on the beautiful Waccamaw River at Deck 383 with another great recipe. This episode’s guest chef is Carol Penagos. Carol is a sous chef for Strand Catering in Myrtle Beach. Carol is cooking up a crab boil for two! Typically, a crab boil is done for a large quantity of people but in this recipe, she’s “boiled” it down for only two!

LOW COUNTRY BOIL FOR TWO

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of potatoes
  • 1 pound of Large shrimp
  • 1 pound of mussels
  • ½ pound of little neck clams
  • 1-2 cups of crab boil mix ( we prefer 7 Seas Crab boil mix, or Old Bay )
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • ½ cup of diced celery
  • 2 tbs of minced garlic
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 3 lemons ( 2 of them cut in half, 1 of them slice into 8 wedges)
  • 1 can of beer (we prefer New Souths White Ale)
  • 2 ears of corn cut into 3- 4 pieces
  • 3 quarts of water

Directions

In a large stockpot on med high heat add oil, once oil is hot add the onion, garlic and celery and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add your crab boil mix. Take the 2 halved lemons and squeeze into the pot, toss them into the pot when done. Add 1 can of beer. Let simmer for 10 minutes. You want a nice aromatic broth with plenty of salt and spice. Don’t be afraid to taste test it. Then add 3 quarts of water and bring the mixture to a boil. Add about 1 pound of small potatoes to the boiling water and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender about halfway through. Then add the sausage and corn together into the boiling water. Boil for about five minutes. Ensure all contents are covered in liquids during cooking process and stir occasionally. Add the clams and mussels and cook for 8-10 min or until they open. Add shrimp and turn the heat off, cover the pot and let set for 15 minutes. You can serve it the traditional way by draining the contents and then spreading them over newspaper on a table so that you both can get to all the items. Or you can strain the items out into individual portion size bowls.

Drain the water from the pot and dump the entire contents on a table covered with several layers of newspaper. It’s okay to use a platter or large bowl, but low country boil is traditionally served in the middle of the table so everyone can just reach in and help themselves
