I host a shrimp boil every year...and it's always one of my favorite parties to host. It's super easy to prep ahead and that gives me all the time in the world to play with my friends:)
It’s always a hit with my because it’s casual, feels like a celebration of summer and you get to eat with your fingers! Hello???...fun aaaaaand no dishes!!
I got this one from my Dad (the recipe AND the cool bucket pictured above...luv). During the summers, in Virginia, it was always a BIG day when he brought out the shrimp boil pot! My sisters and I got so excited because we knew a fun party was about to go down. My dad went all out on food and festivities… I remember everyone smiling, laughing, eating, drinking and dancing all night long.
Super easy, start by setting a beautiful table—effortless, pretty and summery. I use a red and white check tablecloth, then I lay brown kraft paper or newspaper down the center of the table. Then I use pie tins for plates and a lemon for a place card. Super simple and simply beautiful!
Then, when you're ready to eat...just follow my 5-step guide....and throw all the goodness into the pool! I set a timer, sip a beer and get ready to feast!
It's all just so much fun. My dad went all out on food and festivities… I remember everyone smiling, laughing, eating, drinking and dancing all night long.
And I guess I just love to do the same. There’s no food that brings people together quite like a shrimp boil. Just roll up your sleeves, grab a cold one, and enjoy your fingertips full of flavor!
