*I’m thrilled to be partnering today with the historic Italian company Lagostina and their gorgeous line of pans.  They’ve been designing innovative cookware since 1901 and everything they sell has a lifetime warranty ~ I know you’re going to love them as much as I do!

Low Country Shrimp Boil ~ this iconic Southern feast is the ultimate one pot meal ~ Vidalia onions, potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, and shrimp get layered into a large stock pot with Cajun spices ~ just add friends and lots of ice cold beer!

I’m bursting with excitement today because not only am I sharing this fun shrimp boil recipe with you, but I’m also GIVING AWAY an entire 11-piece set of Lagostina’s newest collection of Luminosa stainless steel cookware.  This gorgeous high end set of pans will see you through a lifetime of delicious meals…to enter, check out the details below.  NOTE: Giveaway has ended

There are pans, and then there are pans.  If you love to cook, half the joy is doing it with beautiful, functional equipment, and a great recipe can be lost without the right pan.  Lagostina combines old world craftsmanship (it was founded by a father and son team in Italy more than a century ago) with innovative technology and design ~ their cookware has even been exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art!  The pans have a sensuous curve to them, a satisfying hefty weight, and an ergonomic shape ~ but most importantly, they do the job they were designed to do, they cook your food evenly and efficiently, and they’ll last a lifetime.  Little details like handy measurement markings on the inside of the pans, holes in the handles for hanging, and the beautiful engraved logo make these pans extra special.

…the first time I held one of these pans I fell in love, they just feel right in my hands.

Are you like me? ~ my pans are a ragtag assortment acquired slowly over years, with missing or mix-matched lids.  There’s a hellish clang and clatter every time I try to find something in my crammed cupboards.  I was ripe for a pan makeover and Lagostina came to the rescue.

You’ve heard me talk about the importance of heavy bottomed pans in cooking, and I love cooking with cast iron for that reason, but it can be so heavy to lug up from the bottom cabinet for everyday use.  The Lagostina pans are hefty on the bottom, where it counts for even cooking, but light enough for me to maneuver easily ~ they’ve revolutionized my kitchen!

Low Country Shrimp Boil ready to eat!

The Lagostina large 6 quart stock pot with its drain basket is perfect for a good old fashioned shrimp boil.  It’s large enough to hold all the ingredients as you layer them in, one at a time, depending on how long they need to cook.

It starts with the onions and potatoes, then on to the sausage and corn, and finally the shrimp go in for the last few minutes.

TIP:  I’ve made this with fresh shrimp and I’ve made it with a bag of frozen, shell-on shrimp, and both worked beautifully.  No need to thaw the frozen shrimp, just allow a little extra cooking time.

After that it’s just a matter of lifting the basket, dumping out the delicious contents, and ringing the dinner bell!  Traditionally a boil is turned out onto newspaper right on a picnic table, with lots of hot sauce, and mayo dip handy.  But I went with a more elegant presentation and brought it to the table in my Lagostina 10 1/2 ” skillet.

A final dusting of Old Bay, some fresh parsley, and lemon wedges finishes it off.

Classic Low Country Shrimp Boil recipe, the ultimate one pot meal!

This festive meal is perfect for summer gatherings…serve this low country shrimp boil with a fabulous SWEET VIDALIA ONION SLAW and lots of cold beer.

    As a Florida gal..from Georgia we do this sprimp boil often..the only thing that changes is the type of seafood..so easy, and delicious.
    Great presentation. I use kielbasa though.
    Don’t you love it?!
    I’m making this 4th with shrimp and lobster we caught..shrimp tonight..the lobster during mini lobster season,
    Adding key lime pie and crusty French bread.
    Good eats.
    Thanks so much..hope I will finally get my Lagostina to serve my family with pride.

    I think the strainer in the large pot would be very useful for the shrimp boil and for making pasta. I wanted you to know that I have made your citrus curd recipe many times and it always works out perfectly. I serve it for dessert along with Madeleine cookies (purchased from Costco!)……the easiest best desert ever…….

    I look forward to you recipes.
    My Cuisinart 1.5 Quart Ice Cream Maker which you featured arrived yesterday and I can not wait to try your Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe.
    When I attended the Florence School de Cuisine Cordon Blu, Gabriella Mari and Christina Blasi use the Logustina cookware which you have just featured.
    You are in good company!

    It’s going to be 111° F today in Phoenix, Arizona. I was looking for recipe to eat with friends who are coming over to swim and I thought this would be perfect but then I thought, “Boil?” We are already “boiling” out here. I’ll save this yummy recipe for when we go up north where it’s cooler. Thank you. I love reading your blog. I made the banana cake with cardamom frosting a few months ago and it was delicious!

    A few years ago I went on a great trip to Nashville, stayed with the kindest most hospitable friends, and they treated to me to a low country boil. I could have eaten all night. My host sent me home with her coveted spice mix (that she can only find in Florida) and I keep saying to my family we need to have one night where we do a low country boil here in Alberta!! Wouldn’t this set make it easier!!?? ;)

    Yum! Just love the food and festive camaraderie and fun of a boil. Sometimes we add lobster (bigger ones-from Maine), all guests (well, almost all) tear off and donate the tails to me (the cook). The next day we all gather at lunchtime and I serve leftover salads, corn on the cob and “to die for” lobster rolls made from the previous day’s donations. (Even to the greedy ones!). Top loading buttered & grilled rolls only, please!
    Love your blog. You are indeed a creative, fun and excellent cook. Time for a cookbook! (Or is there one?) Also love your happy face picture!

The flavors, using your hands and licking your fingers… That picture where the lemons are reflected in the pan’s super clean surface – I cannot even remember having a pan that shiny, lol.

    This recipe looks fabulous & I will definitely try. But living so close to New Orleans, I must add some crab boil along with everything else!! The Sriracha mayo dip looks to be a good & quick dip that I will also try. But since my hometown is Jackson, Mississippi where Come-Back Sauce was born, I always have some made when doing a shrimp boil!!!
    So enjoy your posts & recipes, Sue.

    I’ve been cooking for over 50 years. I started preparing family meals when I was in Junior High School. Over the years I have probably used every type of cookware that is made and have found that stainless steel is the best for sauteing, frying, braising and every other thing you can do on a stove. Clean-up is a breeze and foods don’t stick to the pan if you know how to pre-heat before adding your food. Thank you for a great blog. I look forward to seeing it in my e-mail every day!

I would love these pans while I enjoy learning to cook again, since you say they’re more manageable than cast iron (which I do love to cook with), and I could gaze upon their beauty instead of my “ragtag” pan collection.

    I never would have thought of a mayo dip! Here in the south, the shrimp boil is ubiquitous, on the menu at every crab shack (and yes, it includes crab legs if you get it from there!), but I’ve never seen a mayo dip for it. Going to be trying it this week! Probably won’t use a sriracha, as I have Louisiana Crystal hot sauce on-hand (or the mouths I feed revolt).

    Never thought I’d say “what a gorgeous pan” but there’s a first time for everything. And this Low Country boil looks delicious. Seeing it altogether in the pan is more appetizing than dumped all over a table. Plus, depending on where you sit, you can lose out on some of your favorites once it’s dumped. I don’t like scrambling for my dinner!

    Beautiful cookware, Sue! Congratulations on partnering up with Langostina. I love an easy-peasy recipe like this but have never tried a low country boil. I have a big stick pot but it lacks a heavy bottom and the strainer. Can you suggest a hack for the strainer? Also, while I like all of the spices that make up Old Bay, I discovered when I lived in Maryland that I don’t care for them mixed together! Any suggestions for an alternative foe Old Bay seasoning?

      WOW! Taking this recipe across Oregon Sunday to have at the coast on July 4 while we’re vacationing there with pescetarian friends! SO SIMPLE! And the pots look beautiful! I’ve not seen them before and I very much doubt the vacation home we’ll be staying in will have such fancy fare but clearly this is a recipe that can adjust! And when I win the Lagostina set they’ll go in our vacation rental WITH a copy of this delicious-sounding recipe. LOVE SUMMER!

    Decided this is the recipe for July 4th…looks great. But! 11-piece set of Lagostina’s newest collection of Luminosa stainless steel cookware is to die for. I love cast iron/enameled cast iron but hard for me to lift at times. An instructor in a cooking class had a Lagostina saute pan; I used in class and it was easy to handle; great cooking pan. Let it be me that wins. Sue, love the recipes you share with us and your photographs are lively and inviting.

    We cook the vast majority of our meals on the stove top. I always favored the black coated pans because I thought they were easier to maintain, but they scratch too easily. Now we use stainless exclusively. With the right scrub pads, they will look like the day you bought them, no matter how much you use them.

        July 1, 2017 at 1:07 pm

        Lagostina says this, Lois: After each use, wash your pan with hot water, liquid detergent and a sponge. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
        • Do not use metal scouring pads, abrasive wire wool or harsh scouring powder.
        • Never put cold water into a hot pan. Sudden changes of temperature may cause metal to warp, resulting in an uneven base.
        • If you burn food in your pan, fill it with warm water and washing up liquid and leave to soak for about an hour. Afterwards wash it with washing-up liquid and a sponge. If soaking is not enough, scrub with a non-metallic scouring pad suitable for the purpose. If you have a non-stick utensil, wipe it again with a piece of cotton moistened with oil to maintain all of its non-stick properties.
