We were gifted a dozen ears of sweet corn and after eating some for dinner I decided to use the rest with this fabulous Shrimp Boil. It is made with shrimp, beer, red potatoes, onion, andouille sausage and sweet corn all boiled in water with Old Bay seasonings. This was a great tasting meal that was made in one pot and it feeds a large family or guests.
