Aaaa and we are back! Back to school, back to soccer practice 4 nights a week, homework, game dates, swimming practice 3 nights a week starting next week… Does anyone else do the math? I did so and instantly started coming up with more slow cooker recipes for my family.
My little sister lives in North Carolina and boiled shrimp in the summer are common. I thought to myself, why enjoy that kindness ONLY in summer? Shrimp boils are super simple and take only a handful of ingredients, basically my FAVORITE type of recipe.
Ingredients for boiling shrimp
A shrimp cooking recipe can seem intimidating if you haven't done it before. But honestly, this is the easiest recipe in the world and I've made it even easier using a slow cooker. Only a few ingredients are needed. How few ingredients do you order? I am going to tell you:
- Potatoes: You can really use any type here, but the new potatoes are great and I prefer the red one
- sausage – andouille or kielbasa are perfect
- corn – about 4 ears does the trick
- shrimp – a couple of pounds of large shrimp
- chicken broth or broth
- Old Bay Seasoning
- cayenne – if you like a little heat
- melted butter and fresh parsley to finish
- The cocktail sauce is ideal for dipping!
I guess you have at least half of these ingredients on hand. Even better is the preparation. Cut the larger new potatoes in half, cut the corn into quarters, toss everything BUT the shrimp in the slow cooker and let it rip.

Super kid friendly
This easy slow cooker shrimp boil is sure to become an instant favorite! Here's my new measure of success: Do any of the kids instantly request that it's on their birthday menu? Guess what? They both said this was the BEST dinner they had had in weeks (???) and that they wanted him again as soon as possible and, of course, on his birthdays 🙂
They both had seconds. I had a feeling they were going to like it. They both love shrimp and the flavors are super simple and not overwhelming. It is also easy to eat and fun.
Winner, winner, shrimp dinner.
What to serve with this easy boiled shrimp
The best thing about an old boiled shrimp is that it is a kind of all-in-one dinner.
- If you really want to go all in, a good salad like this spinach and strawberry salad or broccoli salad would be a new addition to your meal.
- My children have never turned down their favorite Dinner Rolls or any Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bread.
- You can also go with a southern classic and prepare a batch of my 5-star cookies.
I get this question a lot when it comes to shrimp boils. The best thing is that you can make it as spicy or smooth as you want. Adjust the cayenne to suit your personal preferences.
I used half a teaspoon of cayenne. We can handle a little heat. If you like spicier things, add up to 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
- Macaroni and cheese
- Tater Tot Casserole
- Chicken and broccoli rice casserole
- Turkey Meatballs
- Fried chicken fillet
