Shrimp Low Country Boil


1 onion

2 lemons

1 bottle beer

Old bay seasoning bag

5 pounds red potatoes

5 pounds corn on the cob

5 pounds smoked sausage

5 pounds shrimp


Start the water boiling in a pot. While the water is heating up, add the beer, old bay seasoning bag, two lemons ( squeeze both into water), and an onion (cut through onion to open up the petals).

When the water comes to a boil, add diced red potatoes. Allow water to come back to boil and let cook for five minutes. Then add the corn on the cob and let the water come back a boil. Cook for five minutes and then add the cut smoked sausage.

Bring the water back to a boil and cook five to seven minutes. Check and make sure the potatoes are tender. The last step is to add the shrimp and cook them for two minutes, or until they change color and reach the desired tenderness.

After taking the shrimp out of the water, season with any kind of Cajun spice. Enjoy!

Parmesan Crusted Red Snapper


Snapper filets (for best results use 7-9 ounce filets)

Italian bread crumbs

Parmesan cheese




Olive oil


Heat the skillet with olive oil in the pan. Wet both sides of the snapper filets with water. Salt and pepper both sides of the filet. Roll the filets in bread crumbs. Place the fish in the skillet, cooking five to seven minutes on each side or until the fish is flaking. Just before the fish is done, add parmesan cheese to allow time to melt and make the crust. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges.
