Don't eat Shrimp any place else!

Seriously - once you have fresh shrimp straight off the boat the rest of that farm raised, antibiotic filled frozen mush just doesn't cut it.

Our first night on the Isle of Palm in South Carolina Kenny (Richard's little brother) made us a Frogmore Stew also know as Lowcountry Boil. The bowl of raw shrimp in the sink had absolutely no smell - can you say that about any shrimp you've cooked lately? And - for breakfast the next day - leftover shrimp and grits!!!

Frogmore Stew by Kenny

2 beers (for the stew - drink the rest of the case)

couple cups water

crab/shrimp boil seasoning package

bunch of small potatoes

couple Portuguese sausages, or some smoked sausage cut into 2 inch pieces

6 corn on the cob

Couple pounds fresh shrimp un-peeled

Bring beer, water and spices to boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender. Add sausages for another 5 min then corn for a couple more min. Add the shrimp and take off the heat - only needs about 1 min to cook - don't overcook the shrimp! Drain and serve - only when you are in the south!

Post Note: As if sweet tea isn't gross enough - they make "Sweet Tea Bourbon"!
