Smoked Salt Low Country Boil
Shrimp / Dinner
One of my favorite ways to enjoy time with others is a huge low country boil. Everyone can just pick a spot at the table and eat (no plates necessary) just be sure to have plenty of paper towels. This easy recipe is great for big and small gatherings. We boiled ours in a large Masterbuild Fryer/boil, but easily done in large pot in the kitchen. The best part about this recipe is that you can add or remove whatever ingredients you like or dislike.
Lane's Signature Smoked Salt
Zatarain's liquid Concentrated Shrimp and Crab Boil
Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning 1- 2 tablespoons
*** Use the Limited Edition Lane's New Bay Seasoning if you happen to have it ***
13oz pack of Smoked Sausage (Kiolbassa Jalapeno Beef Smoked Sausage)
1 - 2 lb raw de-veined shrimp w/ tail
2 lb red potatoes
4 cobs of corn
2 medium sweet onions peeled and quartered
1 head of garlic
Optional Ingredients - Melted butter, cocktail sauce, Lane's Sorta White Sauce
Slice sausage to your preferred thickness. We sliced ours up in 2 inch cuts.
Slice the Corn in half or thirds. We cut them in half.
You can cut the red potatoes in half or keep them whole.
Slice lemons into fourths
Add 5 to 6 quarts of water to a very large pot. Add lemon slices, 1 head of garlic, peeled and quartered onions, 1 tbsp Zatarain's crab boil, 1 tbsp Lane's Signature Smoked Salt, and 2 tbsp of Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning (or Lane's New Bay Seasoning). Bring to a boil
**Just remember as you add more ingredients it will fill the pot. You might have to remove some water as you fill or start with less water. This is up to you and the size of pot you are using.
When your water is boiling add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Then add sausage and cook for 5 minutes. Then add corn and cook for 8 minutes. The potatoes should be tender at this point. Lastly add shrimp and cook until pink, about 1 - 2 minutes.
Once shrimp are cooked - strain everything and place on a table covered in newspaper or brown butcher paper. Or strain everything and place on a baking sheet or large bowl.
Using Lane's Signature Smoked Finishing Salt - dust the entire meal and enjoy.
Optional Dipping Sauces:
- A bowl of melted butter
- Cocktail Sauce
- Lane's Sorta White Sauce for dipping or drizzling
The best part about this recipe is that you can add or remove whatever ingredients you like or dislike..

If you want to plan a meal for more than 4 people just do the math and make sure you have a big enough pot!!
