#1 Cajun Shrimp boil!08-17-2011, 11:59 PM
My son works at the Tampa shrimp co. in Dover Fl and he gave me 3 lbs of raw peel and eat shrimp. We decided to do a shrimp boil, killer meal! Not really expensive when you get the shrimp for free, but the rest of the meal is cheap!
1/2 cup Old Bay Seasoning
2 tablespoons salt
4 quarts water
1 (12 ounce) cans beer
8 medium red potatoes, cut in quarters
2 large vidalia onions, cut in wedges
2 lbs smoked sausage, cut in 2 inch lengths
8 ears frozen corn on the cob, thawed ( I use Birdseye Little Ears)
4 lbs large shrimp, in shells
In an 8-quart stock pot, bring Old Bay, salt, water and beer to a boil.
Add potatoes and onions; cook over high heat for 8 minutes.
Add smoked sausage; continue to cook on high for 5 minutes.
Add corn to pot; continue to boil for 7 minutes.
Add shrimp in shells, cook for 4 minutes.
Drain cookin liquid; pour contents of pot into several large bowl
Getting the stuff ready
Time to dig in!
