layers of newspaper on the patio table - cold beers and peel away !!
shells in the middle- roll up the paper - et voila !!

Default here the recipe - whoever posted it will recognize it..!

I modified the quantities a bit and did 2x 6 lbs to make sure it stayed warm..

Shrimp boil.

~ 15 oz. Zatarains Shrimp boil Seasoning *
3 gallons of water
3 cans of beer
12 boiler/small red potatoes
3 Large Vidalia Onions, cut in quarters
1 head of Garlic
3 lbs smoked sausage, cut in 2 inch lengths
12 ears corn on the cob , cut in 3 pieces
12 lbs large shrimp (16-20) tail on, peeled and deveined - I do not use the peeled ones - just "headless" ones.. (Mrs. doesn;t like the heads on it..)
3 Dozen Clams - did not use these - couldn';t find good ones this time
3 Lemons Cut in Half

In a 30 quart stock pot bring Zatarains Shrimp boil Seasoning, Salt, Water and beer to a boil for 5 minutes

Add Potatoes, Garlic and onions and cook over high for 8 minutes
Add smoked sausage and corn and cook on high for 5 minutes
Add Clams and lemons cook for 4 minutes
Add shrimp and cook till shrimp are pink (about 2-3 minutes)


* for the Shrimp boil mix I used ~ 3 of these 5 oz. bags..


and it's handy to have one of these to scoop the stuff out of the pot..

That looks great! I lived in LA for a while and did these about weekly. I think I may have to do one soon...
