I know everyone has seen a low country boil with sausage, corn, potatoes, onions, etc. Well this is Florida's answer to a Seafood Low Country Boil ... and their version. I have been doing this for some twenty years. Now, I will give you my recipe to serve 12, but just cut it in half or a third and add what you want. This recipe isn't about exact amounts, but more about the method and order of cooking. These are what I like to add, but if you don't like or can't afford the lobster, add more snow crab, shrimp, clams or mussels. So don't worry, what ingredients you have, but follow the order that everything is cooked. My ingredients include: onions, potatoes, corn on the cob, kielbasa or smoked sausage, artichokes, lemons, lobster tails, clams, mussels, snow crab and shrimp. Don't think you need a lobster tail per person, but I do 1/2 corn cob and 3 small potatoes per per person and 1/2 sausage (more sausage if I know there is not a lot of seafood lovers) and then the seafood. So this is my process for 12. I cook mine for this amount in a turkey cooker with water, beer and Old Bay seasoning, The turkey cooker than has a strainer so it is easy to drain, but a small pot on the stove will work for a small group of 3-4. Remember ... Rule of thumb 2-3 small red potatoes, 1/2 - 1 sausage link, 1 artichoke heart, 1/2 cob of corn, 1/2 onion, and then seafood per person, so just add what you can. Personally, I could eat 2 lobster tails, my dad 1 lb or more shrimp, and my best friend, all the mussels, so just do a little of everything, and I think they will be all very happy. Now, it sounds like a lot, but the entire dinner cooked in one pot. Just melt some butter, cocktail sauce on the side and a some grilled or baked bread. Cover your table with newspaper and pour it all in the center and let everyone just help themselves. Simple paper plates. We eat everything with plastic, except for a crab cracker and small pick to get the crab meat out. Rolls of paper towels on the table and just relax and have fun. You can also add some sour cream for the potatoes, salt and pepper of course and maybe some dijon mustard for the sausage if you wanted, but there is so much flavor I never find that necessary, but add what you like. Don't try to make it fancy ... just enjoy. When done, pack up the leftovers and plates right in the center of the table, wrap up the newspaper and throw away. NO DISHES!!
