I love a good cajun shrimp boil, especially when we’re in New Orleans, but it’s just as easy to make a similar dish at home!! So, I decided to put together this sheet pan version inspired by all the NOLA-style boil recipes I’ve seen. Just toss the ingredients onto the sheet pan and bake all at once, allowing the flavors to meld together. Serve it outside for a summer dinner or better yet, try making it for Father's Day! I've made this a couple of times for family and friends, and it's always a crowd favorite. You can even lay out some newspaper for the scraps/shells and eat straight from the tray (for little-to-no cleanup!).
¾ pound baby red potatoes
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
½ teaspoon kosher salt
2 medium ears corn
¾ pound shrimp, cleaned
12 ounces kielbasa, andouille, or other spicy sausage, sliced
8 thick slices crusty white bread
½ cup chopped scallions
There are lots of ways to get dirty that don’t involve a mud mask. This is one of them.
Bread baskets have a whole new meaning.
A trend we can get on board with.
