EASY INDOOR SHRIMP BOIL


Shrimp Boil

THE EASIEST SHRIMP BOIL YOU WILL EVER MAKE

 

I love making easy yet delicious meals but what I love even more is when these meals are a social thing.  What I mean by this is when everyone comes to the table to catch up and enjoy each other’s company around a great meal.  

When my hubby graduated from his residency, I  had a shrimp and lobster boil for his classmates and their families.  Since then, we have fallen in love with all kinds of boils – Crawfish, lobster, shrimp, my family loves them all.  Several years ago during winter I was craving a good shrimp boil but the weather wasn’t suited to cook outdoors.  So I took the same concept, simplified it and brought it indoors.  

We still have a summer outdoor boil, which is roughly during Crawfish season, but with this recipe we can substitute shrimp or lobster all year round.  Try this with your family.  It’s a great way to get everyone together!
