This has to be one of my favorite seafood dishes. I had brought home 10 lbs. of shrimp from New Orleans and we have been making this about once a month. I really like the addition of sausage to it also as it adds another level of flavor. It is so easy to do and so fun to eat. Make sure to have some bowls to throw the shrimp shells in or line your table with newspapers, either way will work.

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil with the bag of crab boil. Add potatoes. If you are using fingerlings as I did here, add the corn in 5 minutes.
