Gulf Shrimp Boil

Boiled shrimp doesn't have to be just for a party or a crowd.  Spicy shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes makes a great summer meal when paired with a summer salad. 

  • 3 quarts water
  • 1/2 cup Zatarain's Crab Boil seasoning
  • 8 new red small potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 2 ears fresh corn, cut in half
  • 1/2 pound smoked sausage, cut into 4 pieces
  • 2 pounds shrimp in shells

In an 8-quart pot, bring Zatarain's Crab Boil, water and potatoes to boil on high heat. 
Add onion and lemon halves.
Cook 13 minutes.
Add corn and sausage.
Continue to cook 7 minutes.
Add shrimp.
Remove from heat.
Let sit for 10 minutes.
Drain and dump contents in the center of a newspaper-covered table. 
Sprinkle additional Zatarain's Crab Boil seasoning over the top for flavor.
