Good and a new taste for me. Everyone liked it. I'll do it again. Fairly healthy too.
My kids and I love this dish. I've made it at least once a week this summer. I don't always add sausage (my kids don't care for it), but everything else stays the same. I would advise to use Old Bay shrimp boil. I've tried two other brands and we were coughing and hacking due to the boils having too much cayenne pepper. It was waaaay too spicy. Eating the shrimp cold and the rest warmed up the next day is still very tasty.
Wow! My dh and I loved this. Thanks for adding a new favorite to our recipe collection! Great flavor and not that hard to put together.
