    Units: US | Metric

    Generous Serving per person


    • 2 small red potatoes, unpeeled (optional)
    • 1 frozen snow crab legs, cluster (if used, reduce shrimp to 6-8 ounces per person) (optional)
    • crushed red pepper flakes, if you like it hot (optional)


    1. 1
      Fill a large pot half-full of water.
    2. 2
      Bring it to a boil and add Old Bay seasoning and the sausage.
    3. 3
      Bring back to boil and cook about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add ears of corn and bring to boil again.
    5. 5
      If adding potatoes, add them with the corn.
    6. 6
      Cook about 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      If adding frozen crab legs, add them next.
    8. 8
      Bring mixture back to a boil and immediately add the shrimp, cooking just until the shrimp turn pink.
    9. 9
      Remove pot from burner.
    10. 10
      Immediately drain pot and spoon mixture into large serving bowls.
    11. 11
      Serve with cocktail sauce, saltine crackers and plenty of napkins, hand towels or paper towels.
    12. 12
      This is always served as a casual meal because each person peels his own shrimp and it can get messy, but everyone enjoys it.
    13. 13
      For large groups, we usually cook it outside in a huge pot over an open gas burner, like a King Kooker.

      My son made this to eat while watching the New Year's bowl games and it was great! Followed the directions pretty closely. He is going to make it again for his grandmother on Mother's Day.

      What a great shrimp boil! I doubled the ingredients for 3 of us, and added 1 tsp of cayenne pepper with the Old Bay Seasoning. This added a wonderful spicy flavor to everything. I added red potatoes, but didn't have the crab legs. Thanks for a winner recipe. This will be made again.
