Spicy shrimp, hot potatoes, and tender corn. What's not to like?
"I toss the carrots in at the same time as the potatoes - otherwise they're a little crunchy. I also add the onions early for flavor too. The ingredients seemed kind of approximate - esp. the spices. I doubled all of the spice's amounts and still could have used more. I think the size of the pot and the amount of water makes a huge difference. The original recipe (Chef Rick) says add the amount of shrimp (in the recipe) per person, so that's what I did. Both times I cooked this recipe, people raved and KEPT EATING! It's really good. Thanks for posting."- JoeSchell
Top-ranked recipe named "Cajun Country Shrimp Boil"
Boil water in a large kettle on stove or outdoor cooker. Season water with salt and your choice of above flavorings along with the juice of two lemons or 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Add potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Add carrots, sausage and onions. Bring back to a boil. When potatoes and carrots are almost tender, add corn and crabs. Bring to a boil, then add shrimp. Cook a few minutes until shrimp are just done - they will be pink in color. Drain and pour into a basket or onto platters. Have cocktail sauce and Dijon mustard at hand.

Gene7 4 years agoThis was a fun recipe to do and very easy. I had to adjust according to the number of people we expected for dinner. I used 1 gal. H20 for ea. 6 people and multiplied all ingredients by # of people. I used 1.5 tsp of salt & 1 lemon / gal. water. I don't care for Tabasco so used Tapati'o Salsa Picante 2 dashes/person. I used the main recipe plus everything optional.
jeffchristbaum 4 years agoThis is a fantastic recipe I've made a half-dozen times. The only hard part for me has been making sure the potatoes are boiled long enough as they take longer than any of the other ingredients. I always add a variety of sausage. This recipe really wows the crowds, and is easy to make.
