This Simple Shrimp Boil recipe took about 20 minutes to make and less time to devour. My Simple Shrimp Boil would be a perfect recipe to make for Memorial Day Weekend. Imagine making a big pot of shrimp boil and laying it out in front of your guest this weekend? It could be appetizer in the middle of the table that guest could nibble on while you bbq or the main course.  My family absolutely loved this recipe because it had something for everyone. The juicy plump shrimp was the first to go, I love the sweet crunch of the corn, my husband attacked the chicken apple sausage and we all used the baby potatoes to mop up all the sauce. The best part, the kids loved that they were eating with their hands. Try my Simple Shrimp Boil for Memorial Day Weekend or a hands on dinner at home with the family.
