While I wish I had the luxury of whipping up an authentic shrimp boil whenever, I don't. However, this Shrimp Boil Bake satisfies all cravings I have for those flavors! I can also never deny an easy dinner and this recipe is exactly that. One of the best parts is with just one pan you have dinner in under an hour! Other than just maybe one prep bowl, this seriously makes clean up such a breeze. I tend to not think that much about the process of cooking while it's happening, as in, how many dirty dishes I can accumulate in one recipe...until I make a one pan dish like this one. There seriously is something that makes a dish that much more satisfying by being an easy clean up.
Shrimp Boil Bake
- 1/2 lb raw shrimp, peeled and devained
- 2 cups small potatoes, any will work
- 1/2 cup andouille sausage, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
- 2 ears of corn, cleaned
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning
- 1/2 lemon
1. Preheat oven to 400.
2. In a ovenproof baking dish, put the corn, potatoes, sausage. In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of cajun seasoning and 3 tablespoons butter. Pour the butter mixture over the veggies and sausage. Toss to mix. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender.
3. Toss the shrimp with the remaining butter and cajun seasoning. Juice half a lemon on top of the shrimp. When the potatoes are fork tender, add the shrimp and cook an additional 10 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and serve immediately!
Until next time,
