There are many kinds of shrimp and seafood boils throughout the South. This one is a typical low country boil made with crab boil type of seasoning, shrimp, sausages, potatoes, and corn. The seasoning for this version is crab boil, which is a spicy Louisiana-style seasoning. Feel free to substitute with Old Bay Seasoning.
