Beach Eats Recipe: Low Country Boil

When you think about Alabama’s beaches, chances are you think about sun, sand and seafood. We know we do! A beach vacation reminds one of our fans, Leona Cleveland, about traditional seafood preparations, including a Low Country Boil. Leona submitted her recipe to the Eat Your Way Around the Beach recipe contest. Executive Chef Sebastian Sarver at Luna’s Eat & Drink in Orange Beach prepared the dish in a Facebook Live video. Check it out, make it, then tell us what you think in the comment section below. Is there anything you’d add?

Low Country Boil
1 pound Gulf shrimp
4 ears of corn
10 small red potatoes
2 large links Polish sausage, cut in two-inch slices
1 onion, quartered
2 lemons, halved
½ bundle of parsley
Fresh thyme
Cajun seasoning to taste

In a large pot, place corn, potatoes and onion, then add 1 lemon, herbs and spices tied in a cheesecloth. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil until vegetables are done. Add shrimp in the last two minutes. Serve on a table covered in newspaper along with lemon wedges, drawn butter and cocktail sauce.
