Spicy Shrimp Boil #ShrimpShowdown

I received products for this post, however all opinions are 100% my own.

Get ready for some finger-licking fun!  Shrimp, potatoes, sausage and corn boiled together with lots of spice!

Finger food at it’s finest!

Three years ago, my good friend introduced my family to Frogmore Stew.  Being naive northerners, we had no idea exactly what “Frogmore” was but we were open to trying it.  We never looked back!  That was hands down one of the best meals we ever ate.  There was lots of fresh seafood, potatoes and corn spread out onto the table for all of us to feast upon!  Each one of us had butter dribbling down our chins and covering our fingers.  Our kids were in heaven, here was a meal they were actually encouraged to eat with their hands.

Dip into this spicy seafood feast!  Lots of potatoes, corn, sausage and of course shrimp boiled with lots of spice!  www.lemonsforlulu.com

Shrimp boils have now become my go-to meal for any occasion that involves me cooking for a lot of people.  If I’m hosting a party….I make a shrimp boil.  Birthday?  A Shrimp boil.  New Year’s eve?  A shrimp boil.  It makes a lot of food, looks impressive and pleases everyone!  Best of all, it requires hardly any work on my part!  So simple.  If you can boil water, you can do a shrimp boil!  I will say that you do need a few good stock pots, but that’s about it.  Forks and plates are totally optional.  A big table, paper towels, and newspapers preferred!  Serve with butter and cocktail sauce on the side.

I owe my friend a big thanks for introducing us to a whole new way to eat shrimp.  If I’ve done my job, hopefully I’ve introduced you to a whole new way to eat shrimp!  And I hope you love it!

I am fortunate to be part of The Shrimp Showdown Sponsored by Oxo and The Shrimp Council.   I made this shrimp boil with shrimp provided from the Eastern Fish Company.

Eastern Fish Company, one of the world’s largest importers and marketers of shrimp, began in 1974 primarily as a fish and crab trading company sourcing products from Alaska and Canada. By 1982, the company re-directed its focus to the burgeoning farm-raised shrimp industry and began supplying fresh, consistent, premium quality farm-raised and wild-caught shrimp.

Some shrimp facts for you to digest:

A 3-ounce serving of four large shrimp weighs in at less than 85 calories, 1 gram of fat and nearly 20 grams of protein.

Both the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend that people consume at least two servings of seafood each week. But, while Americans consume annually more than 80 pounds of beef and 60 pounds of chicken per capita, shrimp – the nation’s most-popular seafood – rings in at a mere 3.8 pounds per individual.

  1. I’ve always wanted to have a big shrimp boil at my place for the summer..I picture all our friends taking shells off and lots of newspaper lined floors..hahaha

  2. I want to come to the party!! What a magnificent feast!

  3. Somehow, food always tastes better when eaten with your hands.

  4. We do a shrimp boil every year for the 4th of July! It’s such a great way to feed a crowd!

  5. This looks amazing! I grew up in the South Carolina low country and then I moved to Louisiana where crawfish boils are a way of life…and this post totally takes me back to those times. You nailed it! Thanks for an awesome post. :-)

  6. One my friends always has a shrimp boil for Christmas every year. I thought it always sounded like so much fun to do…and to just throw it all across newspaper and serve? I mean, who wants to do dishes on Christmas? :) Love!

    • Who want to do dishes any day! The newspaper is a must! Thank you Nicole!

  7. Janet

    Did you know that Costco carries commercial-kitchen-sized containers of Old Bay Seasoning?

    • OMG!! No I did’t know that! I’m putting that on my list! Thanks Janet!

  8. You’ve done your job! I’ve never made a shrimp boil, but you sold me on how it’s great for feeding a big group. Not only do I cook for my family of 6 (4 adults & 2 teens), but when we have more family over, we tend to go for pizza to feed everyone. This sounds easy enough and would be a really nice change of pace.

    • I really do make this several times a year. I find that people of all ages enjoy this meal! Thank you Brandie!

  9. I LOVE shrimp boils, Tanya! I have never added sausage to mine. I’ll have to try that next time! Thanks for the recipe :)

  10. Now this is my kind of party! I love shrimp boils and your recipe looks delicious :) Pinning!

    • Thanks Audra, it really is a fun meal!

  11. […] Shrimp Boil from Lemons for Lulu – This meal makes me feel like cajun, southern, Louisiana-style things. Would you be mad if I told you I’d be enjoying this one with sweet cornbread? The midwest girl in me can’t handle the southern savory. But I can totally handle shrimp and corn and potatoes. […]

  12. Looks fantastic and makes me long for summer!

  13. What a great recipe! I’ve never had a shrimp boil, but the fish boil in Door County is unreal!! I need to try this!
