    Easy Campsite Shrimp Boil

    This classic shrimp boil is a wonderful, easy, I-can-do recipe at the campsite!
    It calls for a 12 qt stock pot with I have in my camper (after all I'm from Louisiana and when camping we do gumbo's, stews, red beans, and chili's usually for a crowd),
    I also use my induction cooktop to cook this outside, so need to pack around a cooker unless you do so anyway!

    Anyway, here's the recipe:

    Yield: Makes 8 servings (or 4 Cajuns)
    Cook time:40 Minutes

    Ingredients:

    1 (12-ounce) bottle beer (ok, I have a preference here too...Budweiser )
    1 (1.5-ounce) bag seafood boil seasoning (Zatarain's if possible)
    1 tablespoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
    3 bay leaves
    2 onions, quartered
    2 garlic bulbs, halved
    2 lemons, halved
    8 small red potatoes
    4 ears fresh corn, husks removed and halved (I also use frozen corn!)
    1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 2-3-inch diagonal slices
    2 pounds large shrimp (or if you wish to skip the sausage make it 3 lbs of shrimp)

    Preparation:

    1. Bring 4 quarts water and first 8 ingredients to a boil in a 12-quart stockpot. Add potatoes; simmer 15 minutes. Add corn and sausage; simmer 8 minutes. Add shrimp, cover, and turn off heat. Let shrimp sit 10 to 15 minutes to absorb flavor.
    2. Drain liquid, and spread shrimp boil out on a newspaper-covered table.
    3. Serve with french bread, lemon wedges, melted butter, and Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning.

    And as any good Louisianan would say and of course, Steve...

    In coastal South Carolina they call it Frogmore Stew and in Savannah, Ga. they call it Low Country Boil. No matter what it's called, it sure is good, I guarantee!

    wow, that sounds delicious. We are camping in the Adirondaks in Ny, there is plenty of shrimp to be had around here. This will be on our menus for next week, but I need to half it.

    The best and easiest shrimp boil I can think of is when we camped with a friend from NC who lived near the coast, he made an awesome boil

    Just had a belly full of that recipe. Good! I guarantee!

    But I have to ask. Wouldn't a Cajun use Dixie, Jax if it was still available? Miller High Life would be an acceptable substitute.

    Why yes mtpocket...you are correct. However, the redneck side of my family favors the Bud
