Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 lb of large fresh shrimp per person. I usually make it with about 5 lbs of shrimp- leave shell and tails on
Smoked Sausage- sliced. Use your best judgement on amount to put in per person being served. For 5 lbs of shrimp, I would add at least 2-3 lbs of sausage
1 ear of corn per person- break shucked and cleaned ears in half
small bag of small new or red potatoes
1 box zatarans crab boil (it will have 2 bags of boil in it)
1 large can Old Bay seasoning


Fill a huge deep pot (like one you would fry a turkey in) with water (leave enough room for everything to go in later). Bring the water, both bags from the Zatarans box, and at least 1/2 can of Old Bay to a boil. Let it boil for a good 5 minutes or so to flavor the water well. Add potatoes. Boil for about 10 minutes. Add Sausage and corn and boil another 10 minutes. Add shrimp and boil only a couple of minutes until shrimp is done. With a slotted spoon or handles strainer, scoop out everything onto newspaper laid out on a table. Let everyone grab a plate and get down!!! I typically have to do this is batches if there are more than 8-10 people I am feeding.
