This recipe is actually featured in my first cookbook, The New Low Country Cooking. This is an easier, faster version that tastes just as good and maybe better because it takes less time and uses fewer ingredients.

I personally love this dish so much that I recently served this recipe at my 50th birthday celebration for some of my best friends (yes, you read that correctly,  I just hit the big 5-0!). The low country boil is an all around winner; it can be served in the winter or in the summer. This light-flavored comfort food will definitely have everyone coming back to the pot for more.
