About the recipe

This mouthwatering upgraded version of the classic Southern low country boil includes shrimp, corn and red potatoes. 

There are two essential components to making this dish successfully. First, remember that what goes in, comes out. Start with really fresh ingredients.Select a flavorful smoked sausage (like andouille or chorizo) and just-picked corn. The other important component when sequentially cooking ingredients is to use care not to overcook. Start cooking the potatoes. As they become just tender, add the sausage for flavoring. Cook the corn for just a couple of minutes, adding it at the end with the shrimp to prevent overcooking. If you like softer corn, add it a minute or two before adding the shrimp.
