Low Country Boil

Here is a picture of a recent dinner I cooked for 20 people in Charleston, SC at a kayak festival.  It is called a Low Country Boil, and these were Argentinian shrimp.  I said in my introduction that I was a huge fan of good food being cooked on a camping trip.  I’ve even found ways to be creative on kayak expeditions, where you cook on a backpacking stove, and carry everything in the kayak hatches.

The key to a Low Country Boil is NEVER overcook anything, especially seafood.  I grew up with a mother who had two speeds, “OFF” and “HIGH”.  Everything was overcooked.  It took me visiting other people’s homes where I discovered things that I was sure I had never had, and was inspired to learn to cook to make them correctly. This dish is delicious, and very easy.
