Frogmore Stew (Shrimp Boil)

We picked this up as family dish when my grandma was living in Florida. The best part is no plates or silverware! With shrimp prices being a little high right now, it's not a budget meal for us, but a delicious special treat and still much more affordable than eating out. If you have a side burner on your grill, this is a great one to do outside.

Serves 4, $3.25 per serving 


Ingredients

1 T. salt
1 lemon, quartered
2 quarts of boiling water
1 lb. Kielbasa sausage cut into 1 inch pieces - ALDI carries in regular pork or turkey Kielbasa
4-8 baby red or new potatoes, depending on size. If they are very large, cut in half to reduce cooking time
4 corn on the cob, peeled and halved if desired
1 lb. raw, deveined shrimp (I used medium)
Cocktail sauce, spicy mustard, hot sauce, and melted butter for condiments (opt.)

Directions

1. Bring a stock pot of water to a boil. Add 1 T. salt and lemon quarters. If you have liquid crab boil or crab boil spice bags, use it - but they don't have them at ALDI, so I am leaving them out of the recipe. Still good without just misses a little of the spice flavor.

2. Boil potatoes for 5 minutes.

3. Add sausage pieces and cook for 10 more minutes.

4. Add corn on the cob and cook for 5 more minutes.

5. Add shrimp and cook for exactly 3 more minutes. 

6. Strain and serve. We like to cover the table in newspaper, set the strainer in the middle, and dive in!

Comments

  1. Carolyn suggested doing these as grill/campfire foil packets and they are awesome. A few tweaks to make that work - precook your potatoes in the microwave first, dice into bite size pieces. crack corn in 1/2 cobs and place the corn in frozen. All ingredients into individual foil packets, seal tightly, and cook on campfire or grill for 15 min.
