Expert Tips

Wisconsin is famous for its whitefish boils, while in the South Carolina low-country, they feast on shrimp and corn, cooked together in a big pot of boiling water.

* Crab boil mixture can be found in the spice section of the supermarket. If unavailable, use a combination of 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes, 6 bay leaves and 12 whole cloves. Place seasonings on square of cheesecloth; bring corners up and tie with string.
