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
- 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.
