Shrimp Boil - Olive Branch Oil & Spice

Shrimp Boil with Spicy Garlic Butter

Jun 30, 2024

This is so ridiculously delicious and surprisingly easy - if I’m not careful I can eat this all by myself. Shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes cooked together with lots of spices and served with a spiced garlic butter.


  • 2 pounds shrimp (I like to use easy peel)

  • 4 ears of corn, husked and cut into 4 pieces each

  • 1 pound andouille sausage, sliced

  • 8 small red potatoes

  • 1 onion, quartered

  • 1 head of garlic, cut in half 

  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • 4 sprigs of thyme

  • 1 lemon, quartered

  • 3 cans of beer

  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped


  • 1/4 cup White Bear Bay

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne


  1. Add 3 quarts of water and beer to a large stock pot. Add thyme, spice mixture, head of garlic, onion and potatoes. Bring to a boil.

  2. Cook the potatoes for about 10 minutes. Add the corn and sausage and cook for about 7 minutes. Add the shrimp for a couple minutes until just cooked through.

  3. While the shrimp boil cooks melt butter with grated garlic, worcestershire and cayenne.

  4. Drain and transfer the shrimp, potatoes, corn and sausage to a serving platter and top with parsley. Serve with melted butter and lemons.
