Myrtle Beach Vacation

Finally, your Myrtle Beach vacation has arrived.  The family is all together and everyone is having a great time.  After a day of  strolling along the beach looking for shells and shark’s teeth we can think of no better way to end the day than with a traditional coastal meal.  Whether you have rented a Myrtle Beach condo or house, the evening is the perfect time to get everyone off the beach and in for a home cooked meal. Here is a great recipe to enjoy with the family.


Carolina Shrimp Boil

Ingredients

  • Old Bay Seasoning to taste
  • 5 pounds new potatoes
  • 3 (16 ounce) packages cooked kielbasa sausage, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 8 ears fresh corn, husks and silks removed
  • 5 pounds whole crab, broken into pieces
  • 4 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined

Heat a large pot of water over medium-high heat.  Add Old Bay Seasoning to taste, and bring to a boil.  Add potatoes and sausage and cook for about 10 minutes.  Add the corn and crab and cook for another 5 minutes.  When everything is almost done add the shrimp and cook for another 3 or 4 minutes.

Serve in a big bowl or simply mound on a paper-covered table. This is finger food, designed for casual eating and lots of camaraderie.

Serves a lot of hungry people.
