Bait In A Pot ~ Shrimp Boil

Summer.....

Great friends, wonderful conversation and good food. It just doens't get any better than this!






Bait In A Pot ~ Shrimp Boil


  • Shrimp, heads removed (you could even use peeled and poop shoot removed as I did this time)
  • Smoked Sausage, cut into long pieces ~ about 2-3 bites (polish sausage)
  • Potatoes, red or small yukon gold
  • Corn on the cob, broken into smaller pieces
  • Zatarains or Old Bay Crab Boil seasonings
The amounts of each ingredient will depend on how many you are feeding.





Fill a large stock pot a little more than half way with water.

Drop in your seasonings, potatoes, sausage and corn.




Bring to a boil and let boil until potatoes are tender. About 10 min.


Slowly add your shrimp. Boil for about 3-5 min. Until the shrimp are pink and curled.


Drain and serve steaming hot. You can sprinkle some Old Bay over the top if you like.


If we are having a bunch of people over and making 2 or 3 pots, I'll just cover the big table with butcher paper and dump the food directly on the paper in a line down the center of the table so everyone can reach some of everything. No plates or silverware etc. Saves clean up too. ;)
