Why I Love This Recipe

I love shell fish, and then add sausage and some corn.. with a great seasoning...what else would you want.

Ingredients You'll Need

10 cups water
2 pounds small red new potatoes, cut in half
2 small sweet yellow onions, peeled and cut into quarters
1 garlic bulb, top cut off
1 lemon, sliced into quarters
1 (3-oz.) crab and/or shrimp boil-in-bag seasoning (such as Zatarain’s)
3 teaspoons kosher salt
10 ounces Andouille sausage, sliced into 1/2-in. coins
6 ears fresh yellow corn, cut into thirds
2 pounds large unpeeled raw shrimp
Lemon wedges
Cocktail sauce
Melted butter


Step 1
Combine water, potatoes, onions, garlic, lemon, boil-in-bag seasoning, and salt in a 6- or 8-quart slow cooker. Cover, and cook on LOW until potatoes are almost tender, about 4 hours.

Step 2
Add sausage and corn to slow cooker. Cover, and cook on HIGH 30 minutes. Transfer corn to a serving platter. Add shrimp to slow cooker; cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is opaque and pink, 20 to 30 minutes.
