Shrimp and Crab Boil

    Notes from Chef Nicole

    This is our family and friends favorite meal for gatherings like Mothers Day, Memorial Day and Fourth of July; the warm months for when we can gather outside, for the easier cleanup purposes.  We set it up outside at our picnic table, put the bowl in the middle of the table and two extra bowls at both sides of the table for the shells. 
    Pro tip: Have lots of napkins or paper towels ready to go around!
