Shrimp Boil - Cajun Style

Grab a pot and add water. Throw in some seriously good seasonings, potatoes, corn on the cob, spicy sausage, and shrimp. Cook, drain, and serve with a variety of dipping sauces for an easy, laid-back meal with family and friends. Dry rosé wines and beer pair nicely with the seafood and spicy flavours.
