Get ready for some finger-licking fun! Shrimp, potatoes, sausage and corn boiled together with lots of spice!
Finger food at it’s finest!
Three years ago, my good friend introduced my family to Frogmore Stew. Being naive northerners, we had no idea exactly what “Frogmore” was but we were open to trying it. We never looked back! That was hands down one of the best meals we ever ate. There was lots of fresh seafood, potatoes and corn spread out onto the table for all of us to feast upon! Each one of us had butter dribbling down our chins and covering our fingers. Our kids were in heaven, here was a meal they were actually encouraged to eat with their hands.
Shrimp boils have now become my go-to meal for any occasion that involves me cooking for a lot of people. If I’m hosting a party….I make a shrimp boil. Birthday? A Shrimp boil. New Year’s eve? A shrimp boil. It makes a lot of food, looks impressive and pleases everyone! Best of all, it requires hardly any work on my part! So simple. If you can boil water, you can do a shrimp boil! I will say that you do need a few good stock pots, but that’s about it. Forks and plates are totally optional. A big table, paper towels, and newspapers preferred! Serve with butter and cocktail sauce on the side.
I owe my friend a big thanks for introducing us to a whole new way to eat shrimp. If I’ve done my job, hopefully I’ve introduced you to a whole new way to eat shrimp! And I hope you love it!
