FAQs About This Recipe

What kind of sausage should I use?

I would recommend cajun sausage or hot sausage for this recipe, but if you think that may be overwhelmingly cajun-y, any type of sausage will do. If you scale this recipe up for additional servings, using several different types of sausage is a great way to add even more flavor.

How should I store this recipe?

We use 3.4 cup glass meal prep containers for this recipe. It fills up 3 containers about 75% full. Shrimp is notoriously difficult to reheat well, so you may consider using a meal prep container that has two separate areas. Store the shrimp in the smaller side and the rest of the boil in the other. Then remove the shrimp prior to reheating.

Tips From the Kitchen

Use a really BIG pot: I have probably become too complacent with my jumbo cookers. I cook pretty much everything on the stovetop with them now. I cooked this recipe in a 5-quart jumbo cooker on the stovetop. However, this is probably the smallest size pot that you should use to pull off this recipe. While there is enough room, dropping ingredients into boiling water and dodging the splash back isn’t all that fun. If you own a deep pan, I definitely recommend using that!

Add a little… something? Normally, I cook our seafood broils outside in a 100-quart seafood boiler. However, we live in a colder climate and that’s not always possible when the need for seafood hits. So, I try to adjust these recipes for a much, much smaller scale and cook them inside. Outdoors, we usually add corn on the cob to these boils. But it doesn’t reheat that well and takes up a disproportionate amount of space in meal prep containers. So, I’ll leave it up to you to figure out what, if anything, is missing from this recipe. If you find a veggie that works, please let me know!
