Seafood Boil Sauce

Many people simply throw the cooked seafood in melted butter and spice it up while it cooks. This easy recipe will allow you to cook seafood with a different seafood dipping sauce.

Gather ingredients for the Seafood Boil 

Before we start making Seafood Boil, we must make sure you have all the ingredients. This makes cooking so easy! Here’s what you will need.

  •  Seafood: Shrimp, crab legs, and all other seafood.
  •  Sausage: You can skip this ingredient if it is not your favorite. This recipe used beef sausage. In some recipes, they’ve used chicken sausage and meatless sausage to make this recipe.
  •  Red potatoes: They are the best choice because they don’t get so mushy. If you have ordinary (russet) potatoes, you can use them. Reduce the cooking time and boil time to make them mushy.
  •  You can use corn on the cob frozen. I also use fresh corn on the cob. You can make more by cutting it in half, but you don’t have to.
  •  You can also add boiled eggs to your recipe. I have received photos of people adding broccoli and other vegetables. It’s great! Get creative and create what you want.

For Seafood Boil

  • Take a large stockpot and fill it with water and leave enough space at the top for the seafood so it doesn’t spill. Add the bay leaves, old bay seasoning, and lemon juice. Cook until it boils.
  • Add the red potatoes and corn to the seasoned water, and cook for 9-10 minutes.
  • Add the sausage and crab legs. Cover the pot with a lid, and continue cooking for around 15 minutes.
  • Add the shrimp and boil the shrimp for additional 5 minutes, you’ll know when it’s cooked because the shrimp will turn pink.
  • Remove the water, and then take out the bay leaves. Move the mixture to a serving dish, or place it in the stockpot.
  • Spread the garlic butter sauce over the seafood, and keep some of the delicious sauce for the dip.

Garlic Butter Sauce

  • Heat one stick of butter and olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Sauté in the onions until they are translucent.
  • Sauté in the Garlic for about 25 – 30 seconds. Stir constantly to ensure the garlic doesn’t get burned. Add the lemon juice and seasonings. You can adjust the level of spice by adding red pepper and cayenne to suit your taste.
  • Continue to add the remaining butter. Stir constantly and let the butter melt in a saucepan.
  • Use chicken broth if you like, and stir it into the mixture. Serve with your seafood, and/or reserve some for dipping.
