This place-based, family meal submitted by Richard Low is the second runner-up in our 2016 member's recipe contest.

Richard's Upper Peninsula seafood boil includes wild Alaskan sablefish (black cod) and spot shrimp. This is an easy way to cook for a large group, like Richard's family, who eats it off of packing paper on a picnic table.

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Total time: 35 min
Serves: Large Group


  • 1 can Old Bay Seasoning
  • 8 pounds red potatoes
  • 5 packages cooked Kielbasa sausage
  • 12 ears of fresh corn
  • 5-7 pounds sablefish (black cod)
  • 5-7 pounds spot shrimp


Peel and remove tails from shrimp. Slice sablefish fillets into 1-inch strips, leaving the skin on. Cut sausage into 1/2-inch pieces. Shuck corn and break in half.

Fill a very large pot 2/3 full of water (Richard uses a turkey deep fryer, which generally hold 30 quarts). Add entire can of Old Bay seasoning and bring water to boil. Add potatoes and sausage and cook for about 10 minutes.

Add corn and sablefish, cooking for an additional 5 minutes or until cooked.

Add shrimp once the sausage, corn, and sablefish are tender. Cook for about more 3-4 minutes, until shrimp are cooked (shrimp will turn opaque when done).

Drain and serve!
