Boiled Shrimp & Potatoes

Family and friends will enjoy this traditional one pot meal! Celebrate summer’s end southern style shrimp boil.


5 lbs. wild caught domestic shrimp (in shell)
1 small onion
1 1/2 tbsp. liquid crab or shrimp boil
Juice of one lemon
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. red pepper (cayenne)
5 tbsp. salt
3 lbs. potatoes (medium)

Bring crab boil, pepper, lemon juice, onion and garlic powder to hard boil in enough water to cover potatoes and shrimp. Drop in potatoes. Boil until not quite cooked (potatoes can be pierced with a fork and the center should be a little hard). When potatoes reach this stage, drop in shrimp with shell on. When shrimp and potatoes come back to boil, add salt. Hard-boil one minute. Turn off heat, cover pot and soak 8 to 10 minutes. Drain shrimp and potatoes. Serve hot or cold.
