DIRECTIONS

  • You will also need: newspaper or brown grocery bag split open.
  • Fill a large stock pot 2/3 full of water.
  • Add the bay seasoning, the orange, vinegar, and the limes.
  • Bring to a rolling boil then add the potatoes, chicken, sausage, and the onion.
  • Let bring back to a rolling boil, add water as needed to keep the ingredients covered.
  • After boiling for 20 minutes, add the corn.
  • After letting the corn boil for 5 minutes add the shrimp.
  • Boil for another five minutes, or until the shrimp are thoroughly pink.
  • Remove from heat, and drain the water off with a strainer.
  • Spread the newspaper, or paper bags over the table and dump the drained food onto it.
  • The orange and the limes can be discarded.
  • Everyone helps themselves to the dinner.
  • I would recommend the following condiments:
  • cocktail sauce for the peel and eat shrimp.
  • sour cream for the potatoes.
  • mustard sauce for the sausage (I usually mix 1/3 yellow, 1/3 Dijon, and 1/3 coarse stone ground for mine).
  • You can have butter for the corn, but unlike traditional corn on the cob this corn will be very flavorful from the bay seasoning and the citrus, and I usually skip it.
