  • Add shrimp in shells and cook until shrimp turns pink, about 4 minutes.
  • Drain all cooking liquid.
  • Serve everything on a huge platter or even easier line a picnic table with a large plastic table cloth or butcher paper.
  • Then, dump the shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes in the center of the table.
  • Serve with warm, melted butter, my Seriously Good Cocktail Sauce, lemon wedges and lots and lots of napkins or a few rolls of paper towels.
  • This makes enough for about 8 hungry people.


A large outdoor turkey deep fryer works for doing this! Just boil the water and beer in it and add the rest. Keeps any mess outside! Love that!
