Recipe by: Potatoes USA

Tender red potatoes cooked with shrimp, corn, and sausage in a simple one pot meal.


  • 1-pound Red Potatoes, cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons Corn on the Cob, cut into ½ inch rounds
  • ½ pound Cajun Andouille Sausage (Kielbasa can be subbed)
  • 1 pound Raw Peel and Eat Shrimp (Medium Size)
  • ¼ cup Shrimp Boil Seasoning
  • ¼ cup Unsalted Butter, Melted

Prep Time: 10min | Cook Time: 20min

  1. Wash, scrub and cut the potatoes in half.
  2. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover them with water just until the water is about 2 inches above the potatoes. Place the pot on the stove and bring it to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium.  Allow the potatoes to cook for 12-14 minutes or until they are just fork-tender.
  3. Add the corn, sausage, shrimp, and seasoning cook for 3-5 minutes or until the shrimp is cooked.
  4. Drain the pot and serve with melted butter.


  • Pork was used for the Cajun Andouille Sausage, but chicken or turkey sausage can be substituted.
