Shrimp Boil

I’ve been wanting to make one of these for a long time. I would have preferred to also have king crab in it but that stuff is so darn expensive. So this is a poor man’s boil.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lemons halved
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons jerk seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 bag pearl onions peeled
  • 2 pounds baby red potatoes halved, peel on
  • 8 mini ears corn on the cob
  • 2 pounds smoked sausage cut in 1? pieces
  • 2 pounds shrimp peeled, deveined, tail-on

Directions:

  1. Fill a large stockpot about 1/2 way with water.
  2. Squeeze the lemons into the water and add the halves too.
  3. Add the bay leaves, seasoning, onions and garlic.
  4. Bring the broth to a boil over medium high heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Add the potatoes and sausage to the pot and simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Add the corn and cook another 5 minutes, making sure everything is covered in the liquid.
  7. Add the shrimp and remove from heat.
  8. Cover the pot and let the shrimp steam for 15 minutes or until pink.
  9. You may also omit the first 5 ingredients and use a pre-packaged shrimp boil seasoning packet.
  10. Drain and serve on butcher paper with lots of napkins and butter.
