Shrimp Boil



Red potatoes (2 potatoes per person)

Mushrooms (large package)

Onions (2 large)

Andouille sausage (1 to 2 pounds)

Frozen corn on the cob (2 to 3 per person)

Frozen raw jumbo shrimp (1/2 pound per person)

2 lemons

Package of Zatarain’s complete crab, crawfish and shrimp boil

Old Bay Seasoning

Bottle of beer



I use a 30 quart turkey fryer with strainer for my boil.  Fill ¾ full of water and bring to a boil.  Add bottle of beer, lemons (cut in half) and Zatarain’s complete shrimp boil package to water.  Slice potatoes in half, cut up onion, sprinkle with Old Bay Seasoning toss in water and boil for 8 minutes.  Add Andouille sausage and boil for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle corn with Old Bay Seasoning, add to water and boil for 7 minutes.  Sprinkle Old Bay Seasoning on shrimp and mushrooms.  Add to water.  Turn off heat and let the shrimp and mushrooms cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until shrimp is pink.  Spread newspapers on your table, strain boil and then pour on newspaper.  Guests just pick a place to sit and start eating.
