Seafood Boil

6 quarts water

2 lemons, halved

6 garlic cloves

1 cup bourbon

½ cup sea salt

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

2 pounds small red potatoes, scrubbed

6 ears corn, shucked and cut into 1-inch-thick wheels

1 pound pork sausages

1 pound jumbo shrimp in the shell, head on if you can find them

3 tablespoons cumin seeds

3 tablespoons coriander seeds

2 tablespoon black peppercorns

1 tablespoon ground sumac

1. To make the spice bag: Wrap all the spices in a coffee filter or a piece of cheesecloth and tie tightly with kitchen twine.

3. Add the potatoes and corn and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the sausages, shrimp, crabs, clams, and mussels, bring to a boil, and boil until the sausages are cooked, the clams and mussels have opened (discard any unopened ones), and the potatoes and corn are tender, another 10 to 12 minutes.

4. Lift out the vegetables, sausages, and seafood and dump onto a table covered with layers of newspaper.
