• 3 pounds headless shrimp
  • 1 pound red or yellow potatoes, cut into halves or quarters if too large
  • 3-4 ears fresh corn; shucked and cleaned (silver queen if possible and broken in halves)
  • 1 4oz package of Zatarain's Crawfish, Shrimp and Crab Boil
  • Conecuh Sausage cut into 1-2 inch links (optional)
  • 2-3 lemons halved (optional)

Nothing is easier or more fun to serve than a good ole shrimp boil.  Throw everything in the pot, cook, drain and dump right in the middle of the table onto newspaper that has been spread to use as a table cloth and a easy clean up when everyone is finished.  We have a grill with a gas burner so we boil everything outside.   Did I mention easy, fun and oh so good?
