I love this recipe because it’s delicious, easy, my entire family gobbled it up, it’s decently healthy, and gluten-free! We had this tonight and I will most definitely be making it again! LOVED it! Just LOVED it !

Fill stock pot 3/4 of the way with water {about 10 cups for me} , add 1/4 cup of Old Bay seasoning, turn on high heat and bring to a rapid boil.

Yes, Old Bay is Gluten-Free!

4 bi-color corn on the cobs, 1 1/2 lbs baby red potatoes, 1 package Hillshire Farms smoked sausage, and 1 1/2 pounds raw shrimp.

Rinse potatoes and add them whole to the boiling water first…boil for 15 mins.

If your shrimp is frozen- no worries. Just place in a colander and rinse with luke warm water for a couple mins. Shrimp thaws and cooks quickly!

Slice sausage into coin sized slices. Rinse and break corn into halves.

After potatoes boil for 15 mins, throw everything else in the pot and let it boil for another 6-7 mins.

When it’s all done, ladle it out into a large lasagna pan. I put a little butter on the corn and sprinkled it with some sea salt.Low Country Boil is is full of delicious, country and is a fast and easy one pot meal that is sure to please even your children. #easyrecipe #potato #shrimp #dinner

Mmmmm!!!! This really was such a delicious meal and SO easy. If you can boil water, you can make it. My children are huge shrimp fans- they even like “peel and eat” {pictured above}. I cut open their potatoes and put a little ketchup on top- their plates were empty in 5 mins flat.

  1. This is one of my favorite company meal. It is so simple and I think it sets everyone up for a relaxing time. I can do this and still spend time with my company without any stress.
    A few months ago we were invited to a camp site for supper and they did this over an open fire. The table was spread with newspaper and bright colored plates. We had so much fun and sat around the fire for hours.

  2. This looks great. Any idea if it can be frozen after cooking then thawed and reheated? I’m thinking about doing it for a freezer meal swap but I’ve never frozen whole pieces of corn or cooked shrimp before.

  3. I made this last year when you shared it here on your blog and my family loved it. I’m making it again tonight but using frozen corn because cob corn isn’t in season right now! Love this recipe and love you! Thanks for such a great meal idea!
    Blessings, Andrea
