Directions:
This is best cooked outdoors in turkey fryer. Add water and shrimp boil (liquid or dry package), then bring to a boil over flame. Add potatoes after cutting into pieces about the size of a golf ball (some potatoes may not require any cutting). Boil about 15 minutes. Add corn for another 15 minutes. Add onions next for 10 minutes. Add sausage and cook another 10 minutes. Add shrimp for 3 to 5 minutes. Do not overcook shrimp.

Add crab legs, if desired, at the same time as shrimp. If any of the guests have seafood allergies, the shrimp and/or crab legs (depends on allergy) can be cooked separately from previous items (corn, potatoes, onions, etc.).
