When my sister-in-law, Sarah, chose this recipe, she begged, “Don’t hate me!” This plea was valid, as we are a lazy bunch, and dislike Crock Pot Thursday recipes that include multiple steps. This one does, but man, oh man, was it worth it. My husband declared that this crockpot shrimp boil might be his all-time favorite Crockpot recipe, and with over 100 slow-cooked recipes under our belt, that is a bold statement.
A bold statement, for a bold dish. This was a little too spicy for the kids, but I wouldn’t modify the spice for them, because it’s perfect. Just do what Sarah did: make sure the kids have tons of water nearby, and dig in!
This is a great dish for a party, and also goes great with a few beers. I’d be happy to come over and help you eat it. I’ll bring a loaf of crusty bread.
It makes a ton, so use your largest slow cooker. Mine was almost overflowing by the time I got everything in it.
