California Shrimp Boil

When I lived in Seattle a friend did an amazing shrimp boil for us and poured our whole dinner out on the table where we sat and ate with our hands! It was delicious and so much fun!! I wanted to do this same meal, but with little kids and not having the right setting, I modified the meal into a California style shrimp boil!

Red potatoes
Corn on the cob
Large prawns
Fresh bread

I had all the components (minus Seattle’s amazing crab legs) but we hit the grill instead! I skewered the shrimp and seasoned with garlic, lemon, olive oil and salt and pepper and threw them on the grill. The red potatoes were my “Old Bay Potatoes.” It was all delicious and gave us a little taste of the shrimp boil!
