Cajun Shrimp Boil
- 4 Tbsp cajun seasoning
- 1 cup Lamb Weston Redskin Salad Dices (#2028)
- 12 Birds Eye Extra Sweet Mini Corn on the Cob (#4655)
- 1 1/2 cup kielbasa sausage, sliced
- 1 lb. Aqua Star Black Tiger Shrimp (#2806)
- 6 Tbsp Kirkland Salted Sweet Cream Butter (#1723), melted and mixed with 1 1/2 Tbsp cajun seasoning
- First, fill a large stock pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the cajun seasoning, potatoes and corn. Boil for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
- Then, add the sausage and shrimp and boil until the shrimp turn pink, approximately one minute. You’ll want to watch this closely so the shrimp doesn’t get overcooked.
- Now, use a colander to drain the water. Pour back into the pot to toss in the butter until everything is coated.
- To serve, line your table with brown paper bags. Pour the contents of the pot onto the bags, and dig in! Keep the napkins close.
