Lobster Boil



To celebrate the end of summer, the family had a lobster boil. In my humble opinion, the lobster or crab boil is the perfect summer dish. Sumer heat does not affect your dinner. No chilling, no worries about keeping dishes warm, etc. 




The hardest thing about this dish is the timing of when you put the items into the boil. 

Start with 8 quarts of water, add beer, hot sauce, a head of garlic, lemons, bay leaves, onions, Old Bay seasoning and salt. Bring to a boil. 

Next add 2 lbs of Keilbasa and 2 lbs. of Andouille sausage for 3 minutes

Add 3 lbs of new or red potatoes for 8 minutes

Add 6 ears of corn, halved for 4 minutes

Add 6 lobsters for 5 minutes

Add 3 lbs of shrimp and crab for 3 to 4 minutes. 

Remove from water and allow to drain for a minute or two. Pour onto a newspaper lined table or tray for a feast. Easy to make and so Great!!! We had only a few leftovers and fed 7. 

So wonderful!!!! Feels like the beach at home!!!
