    King Creole's Note:

    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!

      We love Boil N Pots- that we call them. We boil sausage for a while then add the taters, then the corn and shrimp. We use lemons- love it. Also have added button mushrooms and carrots- not my fave with those but makes it interesting. We love lots of Crab boil seasoning- I like the liquid form also. Great Summertime Dinner !
