Default Shrimp Boil

3 lbs shrimp (26-30 count)
2 boxes of Old Bay Seasoning
18 small red potatoes
8 ears of corn (break in half)
6 lemons (squeeze out juice, set aside and save peels)
1/2 box of salt
1/2 bulb of garlic (peel & chop)

Add salt, Old Bay, garlic and lemon peels to 16 Qts of water
Bring to boil
Add potatoes. Boil 40 minutes.
Add shrimp. Boil 5 minutes
Remove from heat
Add corn. Lid on. Let stand 10 minutes
Drain water. Dump on newspaper lined table
Pour lemon juice over top
Serve with squeeze butter and crispy french bread.
No utensils or plates allowed.
Serves 6

I've made this for years for small and large groups....people love it and seem to have a great time. I usually throw some kolbassi or hot dogs into the pot for those that don't care for shrimp. Easy clean up...just roll up the newspapers and clean 1 pot!
