Ingredients

  • 1 bag crab boil seasoning (I used Zatarain's)
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 2 stalks celery halved
  • 1.5 Tablespoons salt
  • 1.5 teaspoons hot sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot)
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1.5 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 pound Polish sausage sliced
  • 1.5 pounds small red potatoes (cook the bigger ones longer before adding the other ingredients)
  • 3 to 4 ears of corn, halved
  • 1.5 to 2 pounds shrimp washed, peeled and deveined

Instructions

  1. Combine the first 8 ingredients (crab boil through Worcestershire sauce), add water until half full and boil for 30 minutes. Note: This can be done as a prep step earlier to blend seasonings, and you can bring it back up to a boil when you are ready to cook.

  2. Add potatoes and sausage, and cook 5 minutes.

  3. Add corn, and cook 5 minutes more.

  4. Add in shrimp, and cook until shrimp start to turn pink, about 3 to 5 minutes. My medium peeled, deveined shrimp took about 3 minutes. Shell-on shrimp take about 5 minutes. (Cooking time may vary, based on size of shrimp, so be careful not to overcook.)

  5. Strain and serve immediately. Tip: I like to have cocktail sauce, butter, salt and pepper available.

Recipe Notes

You can use this same recipe with shell-on shrimp. Just cook the shrimp until they turn pink (about 5 minutes).

If you decide to double this recipe, make sure to use a large stock pot, like this 4 gallon one (Amazon affiliate).

If the water gets low ass you are adding ingredients, and the food is not fully covered, add more water and return to a boil before adding the next ingredient.
