Lowcountry–is spelled correctly, that is not a typo so ignore the red squiggle under it. It is an actual word down here in South Carolina. It is the region along the coast including the Sea Islands; such as the more well known Sullivan’s Island, Folly Island and James Island. In the lowcountry shrimp and grits are a staple food. You can basically find it on any menu. One item you don’t typically find is creole, because creole is a more typical Louisiana staple. But there is a little company in Charleston that is trying to make a name for South Carolina in creole.
Carolina creole is a sweeter sauce than typical creole but it is still packed with tons of spices and flavors. When I first stuck a spoon in the jar and snuck a taste I literally had to say “wooh.” The flavors merry and compliment each one so well that your taste buds breath is taken away. I made it with the white rice and shrimp and I couldn’t stop eating it. I made enough for a few dinners and ate it all in one sitting.
