{A great recipe}


For Frogmore Stew. We got this idea from Home Made Simple.
When we first saw it we thought about our annual Labor Day trek on the Wagon Train...this would be perfect. But we wanted to try it out first, so we made it for Greg's birthday dinner last night.
It was perfect for everyone...no one complained even the kids....and us adults thought it was delicous!!
Frogmore Stew
By Allison Fishman
Serves 6 to 8
INGREDIENTS
1 cup crab boil seasoning, plus more for serving
3 pounds small red potatoes, scrubbed
1 1/2 pounds kielbasa, cut into 3-inch pieces
8 ears corn, cracked in half
4 pounds jumbo shrimp, shell-on or off
Mustard, for serving
Cocktail sauce, for serving
Lemon wedges, for serving
INSTRUCTIONS
Bring 10 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a strainer insert. Add seasoning and potatoes. Return to a simmer, and cook for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are almost cooked through.
Add kielbasa and corn and return to a boil. Simmer 3 to 5 minutes, or until corn is bright yellow. Add shrimp and cook until shrimp are bright pink and beginning to curl, about 3 minutes.
Carefully remove strainer insert from pot, and remove to a large tray (to catch any liquid). Spill the whole pot of stew onto a newspaper-lined table (preferably outside), and serve hot with mustard, cocktail sauce, lemon wedges, and lots of paper towels.
This really is a great meal for outdoors...as you can see we just dumped it on newspapers on the counter and everyone dug in!

Hi Katie,
This looks scrumptious! We made something lie it called Shrimp Boil here in the south. I love the one dish easy clean up!
Glad to find you again here in blogland.
