Spicy Cajun Shrimp Smoked Sausage Potatoes

Instead of doing a shrimp boil, we are going to fine tune this recipe just a little bit.

Sauteing the sausage and shrimp separately instead of boiling them with the potatoes and corn enhances the flavors a little more. You’re looking to combine all of the natural juices in this recipe.

Not knocking the boiling, all-in water method because that is also very good.

Preparing the Ingredients

1 pound med-large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pound baby potatoes cut in half, yellow and/or red mix them if you like
3 ears corn cob, each cut crossways 6 pieces
1 ring or package sausage ( your choice), 1-inch thick slices
1 stick butter, using through out the recipe
2 knorr bouillon cube
1 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon old bay seasoning, garlic flavored
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp ceyenne pepper, if you like spicy hot
1 tsp hot sauce, if you like spicy hot
1/2 onion, sliced small

The Cooking Process

In a large pot, boil approximately 8 cups water. Add bouillon cube and potatoes. Boil for 8 minutes, and then add corn and boil for another 5 minutes. Check the potatoes for tenderness. If they are still a little hard, continue to boil for another 3-4 minutes. Drain and pour potatoes and corn into large pan.
Saute the sausage and onions in 3 tablespoons of butter till slightly brown. Pour into pan with potatoes and corn.
