Throw the Perfect Seafood Boil Party This Summer

In the backyard, around sunset, gathered with friends, a pot of fresh seafood set to boil. You hear the sounds - a lid clanging, water boiling, the crumble of ice in a cooler, people chatting, shells cracking, and the laughter of loved ones.

Since eating seafood like lobster, crab and peel-and-eat shrimp is both a deluxe food experience and a hands-on activity, it's great for a party-especially in the summer.

Boiling up a large pot of shellfish with all the fixings of a classic low-country boil-potatoes, smoked sausage, Old Bay seasoning, and plenty of melted butter for dipping-is one of the easiest ways to feed a crowd. The benefits are endless:

  • You can make it your own by adding garden-fresh veggies, like green beans and corn, right to the boil, or serving it with delicious fresh summer salads and grilled bread.
  • Fewer dishes! You only dirty a few large pots since almost everything can be cooked together.
  • The crowd and mess are contained to your backyard-plus the outdoors, with the help of your garden, does all the decorating for you.
  • This delicious meal is relatively hands-off (just boil, drain and dump!) and everyone will love it.

But before you send out your invites, you'll want to make sure you've got the right goods to make the event a success.
