Here’s a little history on the “Low Country”. Low Country, and this is my own definition, is the lower coastal region of South Carolina and the Georgia Coast. Think of Charleston and Savannah ya’ll and all the great seafood you can get there with all the cultural influence of those areas thrown in! Now that’s low country cookin! So back to the Low Country Boil. This is dish that is easy to make and feeds a crowd. You can change the seafood line up depending on what you find- crawfish, crab legs… The flavor comes from the Old Bay Seafood Boil and lemons in the boiling pot. This dish is great for an outdoor party where you can line a picnic table with newspapers, throw the boil on the table, and tell everyone to dig in! Keep butter, hot sauce, and more old bay or your favorite bayou seasoning at hand for additional flavor. I like to serve mine with additional old bay style seasoning. My new favorite is Todd’s Crabby Dirt Seasoning. It has a more pungent and fresh tasting flavor than Old Bay or Zattarain’s and has NO MSG!
