Tips For The Best Shrimp Boil
- Potatoes: Red skin potatoes or Yukon potatoes are your best bet. Cut potatoes into even-sized pieces to promote even cooking.
- Corn: Boiled sweet corn is the perfect complement to all the savory ingredients in your boil. Cut cobs into 2-inch sized pieces.
- Sausage: Turkey Sausage, chicken sausage or any Cajun-style sausage will work. You could also use Polish Kielbasa in a pinch.Kielbasa and potatoes go really well together.
- Seasoning: Old Bay seasoning is a must. Every authentic shrimp boil requires it! You can find it at most grocery stores or online.
- Shrimp: Tail-on, large shrimp work the best. If you can get your hands on tiger shrimp, do it! Raw, thawed, and tail on is the way to go.
In a large pot with water, cook potatoes until they become tender. In a separate pot with boiling water, cook corn for about 10 minutes.
Drain corn and potatoes, and place them into a large bowl.
- Clean and pat dry shrimp, and add them to the bowl. Also, add sausage to the bowl.
In a small bowl, combine butter with minced garlic and Old Bay seasoning. Pour the butter mixture over the shrimp boil ingredients and toss it all together.
Transfer everything to a large baking sheet and bake at 400 °F for about 15 minutes or until the shrimp is fully cooked. Serve with lemon wedges.
