I couldn’t resist sharing this accidental recipe I made today…..it’s accidental because I had intended on using these ingredients for a recipe I saw on Pinterest, kabobs with sausage, shrimp, corn & potatoes, but my meal plan for tonight wasn’t defrosted so I improvised with these ready to go ingredients. The result is a super easy & delicious shrimp & sausage bake…..a nod to a good ole southern shrimp boil. Tons of flavor with minimal effort!
What you need;
1 pound of med-lg shrimp
1 package (or link) of polish kielbasa sausage
1 package of petite potatoes (I used yukon gold, about 15-20 potatoes per package)
3 ears of corn, shucked & silked
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon of seasoning – Old Bay, Creole or Cajun….whatever you like…..I used Cajun, it was pretty spicy, great flavor but next time I will mix some Cajun with something else to make up 1 tablespoon.
How to make;
Peel & de-vein the shrimp & set aside. Cut the corn into thirds, put the corn pieces in a 9×13 dish. Slice the sausage into 1-2 inch pieces, add to the corn. Wash & dry the potatoes, add the whole potatoes to the dish. Mix the melted butter, wine & seasoning together, pour over the corn, sausage & potatoes. Cover the dish with foil & bake at 425 for 35 minutes. After 35 minutes, remove from the oven, uncover & add the shrimp. Return the pan to the oven & bake an additional 5 minutes or until the shrimp are pink. Stir everything around to coat in the sauce.
This is a delicious one dish meal by itself or serve with some Creole rice or crusty French bread for dipping in the sauce. Enjoy!!
