  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot. Squeeze the juice from the lemon into the water, and throw in the halves. Add onion, garlic, salt and crab boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the potatoes and sausage, and return to a boil. Simmer covered for 20 minutes. Break the ears of corn in half, and add them to the pot; cover, and cook for 10 more minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the shrimp, and cover for 5 minutes. Drain off liquid before serving. It may be reserved for other uses such as soup stock.
  3. Stir together the melted butter and hot sauce. Serve with the seafood and vegetables for dipping.

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! =)



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!



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