Old Fashioned Seafood Boil

seafood-boil-olde-town-spice-shoppeSummer gatherings are perfect for cooking up an old fashioned seafood boil! Whether you use a backyard turkey fryer, your stove top or perhaps a cast iron pot over an open fire, nothing makes a better crowd pleasing and one pot meal than a seafood boil.

Typically shrimp or crawfish, with corn on the cob, new potatoes and sausage (like andouille or polish kielbasa style) and various traditions of seasoning are used.

Our Shrimp Spice is a special whole spice blend perfect to add flavor to shrimp when boiling. It’s also a popular customer favorite for using when making cold Cocktail Shrimp.

Our Old Bay Seasoning is a delicious traditional blend of that Northeastern favorite! It’s lends loads of flavor and some great paprika color to your boil. This spice blend is also delicious when sprinkled on fries or on your burgers!


Enjoy this standard Seafood Boil Recipe, but get creative! You could always add in an additional 1 pound of crawfish, clams, a whole onion or celery too!

Seafood Boil

2 pounds shell on shrimp
1 pound of andouille or kielbasa sausage cut into thick wheels
2 ears of corn, shucked and cut into 2 inch pieces
1/2 baby potatoes
1 lemon cut in fourths
1 head of garlic, peeled
1/2 cup of Shrimp Spice OR 1/4 cup of Old Bay Seasoning (more or less to taste)
Water for pot

Rinse the shrimp with water, Use a pair of scissors to cut off the mustache and legs. Set aside. If adding crawfish soak the crawfish in water and rinse a few times until the water becomes clear.
bring the water to boil and add the corn and potatoes and cook until just tender.
Add in the Sausage and seasoning (whichever you use) and cook 5 minutes.
Add in the Seafood and cook 3-5 minutes more.
Drain off the water and it’s best to line a big picnic table with loads of newspaper and dump the drained pot of yumminess right out onto the table for everyone to scoop up… of course a large serving platter works beautifully too!
