A Brief History of the Seafood Boil
With spring in full swing, people are digging out their biggest pots and calling up their local seafood suppliers to begin the seafood boil season. Just as the flowers are in bloom, so are the people gathering around a boil to enjoy a good meal and quality time together. In some parts of the United States, a seafood boil is as common as a backyard BBQ.
