Shrimp Boil Dinner

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by King Creole

Simple shrimp boil. Make sure you have the seasonings in a bag, that way you get the flavor but not all the spices all over your food. Serve with warm french bread and a cold, crisp, green salad. Finish off with a cold summer dessert!

This is delicious with kielbasa slices added- we use the Lite kielbasa from Hillshire Farms. And lots of lemon & cocktail sauce!
