A Boilin'
« on: June 10, 2017, 09:15:45 pm »
In Georgia they call it a Low Country Boil or something like that.  Pat and I were at the Cabin cutting grass and decided to have us a Cabin Boil I guess.
 

 
First there was potatoes, onions, and seasoning.
 

 
Then she added corn and sausage.
 

 
And then the shrimp.  Our platter was full, and so were we!   food3

Is that a packet of seasoning?  What's it called and where can one get them?  That looks like a good way to get some good hot food into a bunch of country folk.

Actually that was our first time to do it exactly like that and we were pleased.  Peeled raw shrimp was what we had so they went in.  Also that size of seasoning packet was a bit too large for this small boil so we will adjust it downward next time and there will be a "next time".    food6

Lynn,
Try the liquid. Easier to adjust for proportion size.

Ox,
Old Bay also makes a season packet but I prefer the Zaterans. A little more pep to it.

You know Pete, there is a possibility that you could be wrong about that "unnamed southern delicacy".

Yes Lee, I bought a bottle last night, and also a packet of powdered seasoning, both Zaterains.  I also got some more shrimp.  That was a fine meal for two for about 10 bucks total.

I've not seen the powder before. Will have to try it. Might be good as a sprinkle on top after boiling instead of Tony's.

That was the first time that I had seen it.  It was 98 cents at Wal-Mart, so I had to try it....maybe even today.

We did it again, but this time using a tablespoon of the liquid Zatarain's.
 

 
A bag of 60-80 frozen shrimp, a couple of corn nubbins, sausage, and potatoes.  A quick, easy, and cheap meal for two.
