Seafood Boil with Corn and Potatoes

Serves 6
Time 40 min
Nothing could be easier or more festive than a big steaming pot of seafood to feed a crowd. If you like, serve it with melted butter and lemon for dipping the seafood and drizzling over the corn and potatoes. Prepared spice mixes for boil usually contain a combination of spices, aromatics and salt and can vary quite a bit, so use package-suggested proportions or taste the water before you add the vegetables and seafood; you want the water to be salty and flavorful but not overpowering.
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons seafood boil seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 pounds medium red potatoes (about 8), halved
  • 1 large yellow onion, quartered
  • 6 ears corn-on-the-cob, peeled and halved
  • 18 littleneck clams, scrubbed
  • 2 pounds mussels, scrubbed
  • 2 pounds jumbo (21-25 count) shell-on shrimp
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Method

In a very large pot (at least 10 quarts), combine 8 cups water, spice mix, salt, potatoes and onion.

Cover and bring to a boil over high heat; boil until potatoes just begin to become tender when pierced with a knife, about 5 minutes.

Remove lid and layer in corn, clams, mussels and shrimp.

Reduce heat to medium-high. Cover pot and cook until clams and mussels open and shrimp are just cooked through, about 10 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, transfer seafood to a platter and corn, onions and potatoes to another bowl or platter. (Discard any clams or mussels that do not open.)

Pour a few cups of the liquid from the pot over seafood and sprinkle both platters with parsley.
