The Original OLD BAY® Shrimp Boil Shrimp Fest

(5.0 Average )
Every coastal town seems to have their own version of a seafood feast. There’s clam bakes, crab boils and shrimp fests … but in Charleston, they call it Frogmore Stew. With a heavy-handed sprinkle of OLD BAY, jumbo shrimp and freshly shucked sweet yellow corn are cooked to tender perfection. Best enjoyed on paper plates, over newspaper covered picnic tables, with your favorite ice-cold brew.
