Frogmore Stew (Low Country Boil)

I have been wanting to make Frogmore Stew (aka Low Country Boil) forever, so this
weekend I finally did it.
It is such a great summer meal that is so easy to make and it is delish!!
It's so informal too - you just throw everything on a big tray, add some crusty french
bread, grab yourself a glass of wine and you're ready to sit down to a fabulous summer
dinner on your deck.
I have decided that I am going to start making this every summer when we go on our
annual  vacation to Hilton Head Island. We always stay at the Disney Resort on the
Island and this would be a great meal to eat out on the deck of our villa.

Frogmore Stew

5 quarts water
1/4 cup Old Bay seasoning
4 lbs. small red potatoes
2 lbs. kielbasa sausage, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
6 ears of corn, halved
4 lbs. unpeeled large fresh shrimp
Old Bay Seasoning
Cocktail Sauce

Bring 5 quarts water and 1/4 cup Old Bay seasoning to a boil in a large covered stockpot.
Add potatoes; return to a boil, and cook, uncovered for 10 minutes.
Add sausage and corn, and return to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Add shrimp to stockpot; cook 3 to 4 miinutes or until shrimp turn pink. Drain. Serve with Old Bay seasoning and cocktail sauce.
Makes 12 servings.
