Steps

  • 1
    Mix water, salt and bag of crab boil mixture in 4-quart Dutch oven. Cover and heat to boiling. Add potatoes and corn. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook 10 to 15 minutes or just until potatoes are tender and corn is bright yellow.

    Remove Dutch oven from heat. Add shrimp; let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until shrimp are pink and firm.

    Drain potatoes, corn and shrimp; discard crab boil bag. Place corn and potatoes on serving platter; drizzle with melted butter. Arrange shrimp on platter; squeeze juice from lemon wedges over shrimp. Sprinkle with pepper and parsley; serve with cocktail sauce.

  • If crab boil package contains two bags, use both bags.
  • The crab boil mixture can be found in the spice section of the supermarket. If unavailable, use a combination of 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes, 6 dried bay leaves and 12 whole cloves. Place seasonings on a square of cheesecloth; bring corners up and tie with string.
  • Warm breadsticks and a tossed salad or coleslaw would nicely accompany this easy meal. Top it off with a chocolate dessert.
