A scrimp boil at the beach is a must, and this is an easy recipe to makes which makes this a fuss free event. First you will need a very large stock pot, and fill it 3/4 full with water. Next put in 2 large brown onions whole , 3 large lemons cut in half and 2 scrimp boil in a bag , bring to a boil. Then add 5 pounds of little red potatoes and 6 corn on the cobb cut in half, and boil for 20 minutes. Next put in 3 pounds of cooked spicy sausages cut in 4 inch pieces , and boil for another 5 minutes, then add 2 bags of uncooked shell and tail on shrimp for 5 more min. Check to make sure the potatoes are tender and the scrimp is pink. Then drain the water and pour the remaining contents into a large container. The pot was very heavy and hot , so I spooned a lot of the water out, then I POURED the remaining water out with a large strainer.
I then set the table with a blue and teal hammock , I bought at world market , out on porch overlooking the beach. I bought the large teal container at Target. I had sodas and water in a large cooler and everyone helped themselves.
I got some cocktail sauce , butter and sourdough bread, and cut up some lemons and limes and put them on the table.
Melissa, Brandon’s girlfriend , carried the pot out to the table for me and Kim helped me cook.
I set the table with some green polka dot dishes I found at the dollar store, a bowl for everyone so they could put the scrimp shells in. Everyone served them selves and clean up was one pot, how easy is that ? This is a great one pot dish to serve at a picnic or a the lake or your backyard. But I must say, eating a scrimp boil at the beach, smelling the salt air was well, just perfect ! Hope everyone has a great weekend !
