Directions

Preparation:
Wash the seafood under cold running water.
Chop vegetables. Place in large plastic freezer bags.
Refrigerate seafood and vegetables until ready to use.

Cooking Method
1. Using your largest pot, fill it about half way full with FRESH water and beer.

Note: Please use good quality water. Seafood has a mild flavor and poor water quality will loose the most important layer of flavor, the seafood smell and taste.

2. Bring water to a boil.

3. Add the Old Bay Seasonings or Crab Boil, peppercorns and the lemons.
4. Taste. The spices should almost cause a fire in your mouth. If you feel the burn, you got it right.


Cook each ingredient in the following order:

1. Crab and/or Crab Legs. Boil crab legs for 5-7 minutes. Boil whole crabs for 10 minutes. Remove them from the pot. Transfer the hot crabs or crab legs to a cooler to keep them hot while finishing the rest of the food.

Once the crab legs are out, the potatoes go in.

2. Add the potatoes to the boiling water in the pot. Bring the water back to a boil and cook for 15 minutes until you can stick a fork in the potatoes. They will be about half cooked at this time. Once the potatoes are ready, add the sausage.

3 Add the sausages to the boiling water in the pot. Bring the water back to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.

4. Add the onions. Bring the water to a boil.

5. Add the corn. Boil for 5 minutes.

6.Add the shrimp. Bring the pot back to a boil.

7. Bring the pot back to boiling.

8. Turn off the burner and place the lid on the pot. Covering the pot will finish cooking the shrimp and will help keep the stew hot until you are ready to serve it.

Note: Do Not Over Cook Your Shrimp. Shrimp is done when it is pink and separates easily from the shell.

9. Drain the pot and pour the entire contents on top of the newspaper.

Serve with freshly made Shrimp Cocktail Sauce and Melted Butter Sauce and enjoy!
