    Alan in SW Florida's Note:

    This type of culinary style is known as low-country cuisine (or "cuisine of the water") because of the abundance of seafood and small fish caught off the coast of the Carolinas and Georgia. Try this recipe for a flavorful, memorable experience.

    • 1/2 gallon water
    • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
    • 8 garlic cloves, cut in halves
    • 3 bay leaves

    • 12 small new potatoes, washed

      I love this recipe! I took advantage of the new potatoes just coming out in the stores and used baby carrots. I had to use the frozen mini ears of corn. I can't wait to make this for our first family barbecue this summer. I'll add some boneless chicken breast halves, then everyone can choose their favorites. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for posting Al.
