5 libras red potatoes cut in half

4 libras smoked sausage cut into 1 inch pieces

creole seasoning


  • In a large steam pot, put about 1 inch of water in the bottom.
  • Then layer each ingredient in the following order, being sure to liberally season each layer with the creole seasoning.
  • Potatoes, corn, sausage, shrimp and crab. Then on a large burner (outside if you can on a propane burner) boil on high for 20-25 minutes.
  • Once the shrimp are all pink, you are good to eat. Pour out on a table with some newspaper or plastic down and dig in.
