Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water, Old Bay and lemon juice in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until almost tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Add shrimp, sausage, corn and leek; cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are pink and the vegetables are tender-crisp, 5 to 6 minutes.

  • Using a slotted spoon and tongs, divide the shrimp, sausage and vegetables among 4 serving bowls. Drizzle each portion with 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Serve with butter, if desired.


Tip: Old Bay seasoning gives this dish a Maryland crab-boil flavor thanks to its blend of celery salt, paprika and proprietary spices (we smell you, clove and onion). But you can sub in other seasoning blends for different regional flair-like Zatarain's for a taste of Louisiana.
