Easy Stovetop Shrimp Boil

Total Time: About 30 Minutes
  • 2 small yellow onions, halved
  • ½ dry shrimp-and-crab boil seasoning
  • 1 lemon, halved, plus wedges for serving
  • 1 head garlic, halved crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 8 ounces small red potatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces andouille sausage, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 globe artichoke
  • 1½ large unpeeled shrimp
  • 2 ears fresh corn, shucked and cut into thirds

Bring 4 quarts water, onions, seasoning, halved lemon, garlic, and salt to a boil in a large stockpot.

Add potatoes, sausage, and artichoke and boil until potatoes are just tender, 18 to 20 minutes.

Add shrimp and corn and cook until shrimp are opaque, about 3 minutes. Drain and serve on a large platter with lemon wedges.

A shrimp boil sounds like a big ordeal, but this recipe is actually a one-pot dinner. Just throw it all in the pot. You can find the seasoning in the spice aisle near the old bay seasoning. After just about 20 minutes of cook time, your potatoes will be tender and your shrimp will be cooked through. The results are spicy and well seasoned. Dump them out onto a big platter, or, for a festive occasion, cover your table in newspaper and serve right there.
