This was a HUGE hit at our party! I was surprised how good this was with sausage; next time I'll add a bit more, as it ran out first. HELPFUL NOTE: "Large" shrimp, F.Y.I., if bought frozen, are the "21-25" shrimp-per-pound size (I stood debating this in the freezer section way too long!). I thawed the shrimp slightly under cold water before cooking. The dipping butter was delicious too. I served this with "German Coleslaw", "Luau Punch", and "Raspberry Cake" from this site-- all huge hits! =)


I have made this several times, the only change is I use Old Bay instead of crab boil


Using good ol' southern shrimp, sausage, corn... (asian shrimp varieties don't compare in flavor). Ice cold beer and fresh southern table wine (iced tea) are a perfect match. Doesn't hurt to start with boiled peanuts! This is flexible country cookin' that's best eaten outside but if the skeeters are out in force, inside works just fine!
