“There are several versions of the famous "Frogmore Stew" but this is one that I have been making for ages. We call it "Company Stew" or "Shrimp Boil because it makes alot and is always enjoyed. I can't recall where I got this recipe, but it's my favorite. The garlic and lemons add and extra zip to this dish. Get out the napkins..... Note: The whole process-- start to finish -- takes 40 minutes. Follow with a green salad... then watermelon. Your Company will love this.”
