  • Recipe
  • 2 lbs King Crab legs, or you can use whatever crab that you want to use…
  • 2 lbs white tail shrimp ( I used 16/18 count per pound) 1 lb smoked sausage, chopped ( you can use beef, pork, chicken… use what you like babe!) 2 lbs venus clams, in shells 4 -6 corn on the cobs, cut into small section 5 medium golden or red potatoes, cut into halves 1 stick/8 tbsp salted butter OR margarine 1 medium onion, sliced 2 tbsp minced garlic 2 large lemons, sliced 3 tbsp old bay seasoning 1 1/2 tbsp dried parsley flakes 2 tbsp red pepper flakes 3 large lay leaves
  • chicken
  • 6-8 cups water
  • 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, then add in the smoked sausage and potatoes. Let the potatoes cook for about 15 minutes, then add in the corn Make sure you do a taste test on the “boil” ( the liquid). If it doesn’t meet your standards, and more seasonings… If it does, move to the next step. Once the potatoes are tender, add in the crab legs. Steam the clams on top of the boil. DO NOT boil the clams in the pot, otherwise the clams will detach from the shells, and get lost in the pot . The clams are done once the shells open. If the clam shells don’t open, that means it’s a bad clam, and it needs to be tossed! Once the clams are done, remove them and set them to the side. Last but not least, add in the shrimp ( I left the shells on, but I removed the veins). Remove the pot from the heat, stir the ingredients, and let sit for 3 – 5 minutes. Remove the food from the pot, but reserve the liquid. Place the food on your chosen platter. Place the clams into the POT, and stir( to season them up a bit). Then add them to the platter. ENJOY!!!!
