I love this recipe - it's so easy and I actually scale it way back to .5 or 1 lb of shrimp and make it every couple of weeks in a saucepan. I usually add whole heads of garlic (extra skin and tops cut off) when I add the onions, and they're so delicious and spreadable and a great addition to the boil.
We made this tonight for New Years Eve (made 10 lbs of shrimp) and added broccoli and cauliflower at the time we added the shrimp. This is the best shrimp boil flavor I've ever had. FIVE STARS from everyone here. Thanks for posting!
Very good. I doubled the amount of Old Bay and added a heavy hit of cayenne, but we like things a little spicier. Also, I heartily recommend adding whole bulbs of garlic (the whole bulb, just slice off the top as if you were roasting it). A nice side to this is French bread and lots of ice cold beer.
From now on, this is the only way I want to cook boiled shrimp. We thought it was fantastic. I doubled the recipe and had two big pots of shrimp and vegetables brewing on the stove. My family and friends feasted all day. Everything was spicy but not too hot. Thanks Nurse Di. We are already planning another shrimp boil for later in June. Yipeeeee!!!
This was fantastic! My whole family just raved over it. We are already planning to fix it again soon. Thanks for posting this recipe.
Wow....we LOVED this. I have made shrimp boils a few times now but this is our favorite by far. We loved the spicyness from the old bay. I really liked how you broke up the directions and told us exactly when to add the ingredients. Everything was cooked perfectly. I only added 6 fresh ears of corn (broke in half) and we wished I would have done a dozen, it was great. Thank you so much for sharing this with us....its a new family favorite. Great recipe.
Incredibly easy and tasted AMAZING! Great crowd pleaser.
Made this for the first time for my mini crabfeast. It came out perfect! Everyone loved it!
This is a great recipe...used it for company...it was alot of fun and very good seasoning. Thanks!
Great recipe, very easy and quick to makeâ€¦.just have to be sure you put the food in on-time! I donâ€™t often make the same thing twice, as there are 350,000 recipes on this siteâ€¦ but I made this last Friday and plan to make it again tonight! (This time, with a little extra Old Bay and some Cayenne pepper for some heat!)
