FROGMORE STEW (Low Country Boil)

  • 1 T olive or peanut oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs. smoke sausage (andouille)
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 qt shrimp broth (water)
  • 1 T crab or shrimp boil
  • 2 lbs. shrimp in shell
  • 1 t salt
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 lbs. cubed potatoes
  • 3 ears corn (cut into 6 pieces)
  • 1 can tomatoes and/or fresh green beans

Brown the sausage in the oil. Then cook the celery and onion till soft. Put everything else except the shrimp into the pot. Cook until the veggies and sausage are done, probably about fifteen minutes, but check them, then add the shrimp last. They'll only need to cook about three minutes. This serves 6.

You can add other seafood if you like, or other veggies. It's fun to serve in big bowls on newspaper because it's messy. Good with a big hunk of Cuban bread. Great for a New Year's Eve party, especially in Florida because you can be outside!
