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 slow-cooker shrimp boil might be his all-time favorite Crock Pot recipe, and with close to 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 Crock Pot. Mine was almost overflowing by the time I got everything in it.
