While enjoying our time at my family's new home just outside Seaside Florida in Santa Rosa Beach, my mom and I wanted to eat as much local, delicious Florida Gulf seafood as possible. Florida's panhandle is full of shops selling all sorts of fresh caught fish- and one day we grabbed some shrimp to throw in this Quick and Easy Shrimp Boil!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen the video I made showing just how easy this shrimp boil is, but today I am sharing the recipe in an easy to print way! This makes for a tasty peel and eat meal, and is perfect for summer lounging. You can use full shrimp like we did (boiling them with the heads on adds lots of delicious flavor- simply peel it off when you eat)- or you can use heads off, or fully shelled shrimp. It's totally up to you!
While you can just toss in the sausage, I like to lightly brown it first for extra flavor. You can also toss in garlic or onions (remove skins and give a rough chop- it's just for flavor), or different types of potatoes. It is a very versatile recipe!
Shrimp boil! It's so easy- boil 5 cups water and add 1lb potatoes and cook until soft, then 2 andouille sausage, 1 ½ lbs shrimp, 1package shrimp boil seasoning. Cover and remove from heat. Let shrimp sit up to two hours (more time in the water =spicier, more flavor). Enjoy!!! Add corn, lobster, crawfish if you'd like! #foodie #foodgram #recipe #video #instayum #instagood #foodblogger #videoshop
