Total Time 43 mins
Servings 6


  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 tsp per quart of water
  • 12 red new potatoes
  • 2 packages of Kielbasa cut into 3 inch pieces
  • 6 half-length cobs of corn
  • 3 pounds fresh uncooked shrimp peeled and de-veined (or unpeeled, if desired)


  • Fill a really large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients.
  • Add the Old Bay Seasoning and bring to a boil. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  • After the water comes to a boil, add the potatoes. Cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Add the kielbasa. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Add the corn. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Add shrimp and cook for about 3 minutes. The shrimp will turn pinkish and a bright white. Do not over cook.
  • Drain and serve with a crusty bread or baguette. I like to serve with Udi's French Baguettes.
