Preparation for the Boil

  • First thing, bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Once the water has started to boil you can begin to add the seafood seasoning of choice, 2 bay leaves, about a cup of beer, onions and garlic. Tip: make it your own, add seasoning you prefer for the flavour want.
  • Add the halved baby potatoes, corn and smoked sausage to the boil until potatoes are cooked
  • Then add the Shrimp to the boil within the last minute or two. Tip: Medium-sized shrimp is usually cooked within one minute so take care not to overcook the shrimp as it will become rubbery and tasteless.
  • Once the shrimp is cooked you can drain the boil and serve in a large dish, tray, foil or just on spread out newspaper or brown paper.
