This seafood boil recipe is very nutritious, tasty and quick & easy to prepare. I turn to this recipe when I really want to treat the family to a fun and entertaining outdoor meal, as you can see in the picture above. If your a seafood lover, you're going to love this Crab and Shrimp boil.
This particular seafood recipe has long been a family favorite. I've seen this recipe prepared several ways: with crabs only, with shrimp and sausage only, or with crab, shrimp and sausage.
This seafood recipe includes all of my favorites: snow crab legs, shrimp, smoked sausage, sweet corn and red potatoes. The availability of frozen food products makes this a viable meal year round. So don't let the non-availability of fresh crab, shrimp and corn discourage you from making this terrific meal any day of the week.
Cookware and Utensils:
As always the key to great cooking is to be prepared and to use quality ingredients. You can either use fresh or frozen snow crab legs, shrimp or sweet corn for this recipe. The sausage should be cut into 2 inch pieces before adding to boiling water.
Here are two other variations of this crab and shrimp boil recipe:
1. Crab boil recipe - If you prefer not to add shrimp you could easily modify this recipe to a crab boil recipe by adding 2 more pounds of crab.
2. Shrimp boil recipe - Just drop the crab legs and add one additional pound of shrimp.
