Crab Boil Seasoning (I use Old Bay Seasoning)
12 baby red potatoes
6 ears of corn, shucked and silk removed
One 12 oz can or bottle of domestic beer
1 medium-size white onion, quartered
2 packages smoked sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 lb medium to large raw shrimp, in the shell
In a stockpot, pour enough water to cover all the ingredients. Add a sprinkling or crab boil seasoning appropriate for the amount of water used. Bring to a boil. Add the potatoes, corn, beer, and onion. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the smoked sausage. Cook 20 minutes more. Add the shrimp and cook about 3 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink. Drain the liquid into the sink and pour the boil onto a big serving platter or bowl. Sprinkle with extra crab boil seasoning.
