Cody is from South East Texas and he grew up eating a lot of cajun seafood and he absolutely loves it. He has been talking about how badly he wants to have a shrimp and crab boil, so I put a cajun dinner on our menu this week.
Our grocery store had very little crab and it was super expensive so I did shrimp, sausage and potatoes instead. It tasted wonderful and Cody was a happy man!
Ragin’ Cajun Boil
2 pounds of raw shrimp with the shell on
2 links of smoked sausage sliced into 2 inch sections
2 pounds of Marble Potatoes (the are little tiny and some are purple, red and yellow).
1bag of Louisiana brand of crab boil seasonings
Fill a BIG pot a little over half way full of water and pour in the bag of Louisiana crab boil. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, add the potatoes first and cover again. Once the potatoes are almost cooked add the shrimp and sausage and cover again. when the shrimp are floating and are pink they are cooked. Scoop everything out and put in a big serving dish. Serve with Cocktail sauce, Tarter sauce and fresh rolls. The purple potatoes are so fun and everyone gets excited to eat them. This is a super easy dinner and it taste wonderful. Enjoy!
