This is my mother’s recipe for a summer shellfish boil. She helped me develop the Pickling Spice recipe due to her love for cooking shellfish. I think you’ll agree, shell fish never tasted better!
Tie pickling spices in muslin bag and add to beer and water mixture. Bring to a boil, turn off the heat, add the shellfish and cook for approximately 10-15 minutes until the fish turns pink.
Remove from shell and serve with melted lemon garlic butter. Tabasco or Spicy Pepper Blend adds a nice flavor to this dipping mix.
