    This is a great starter recipe one of the things I do is I cut the corn halves into another half so they are smaller pieces. Then I boil them as well as the potatoes in crab boil, to make them a little spicy and flavorful. Then I take the shrimp and I actually marinade them in a small bit of the old bay and Cajun seasoning and butter until it is ready for me to put in the oven I cook the soft chorizo and put it with the sausage and seafood I am cooking ( mussels, clams, crab,) anything you like in the boil. I squeeze 2 oranges, 2 lemons, and the butter and seasoning over everything with the potatoes and corn except the shrimp( they will go on last) and I start to bake this. I baste it with the sauce that develops in the bottom of the pan every 10 minutes for about 45 minutes. I then add the shrimp and cook and baste 3 more times with the sauce that is in the pan. My family and friends love this

    This was honestly really good! I’m a garlic lover (especially when it comes to seafood), so I incorporated some garlic to the butter sauce and this was absolutely great!!!Thank you so much for sharing!

    I didn't boil mine. I doubled the Cajun butter and mixed everything in a aluminum pan and put it on my smoker. It turned out great everyone loved it.

    This was my first time making this dish and it turned out amazing. I got a little worried at first because of the amount of water I used, but I drained it every so often. The outcome was great! My friends and I enjoyed it !

    Very delicious, especially paired with a cool mixed drink to counter the spicy.
