HOW TO MAKE A SHRIMP BOIL
The key thing to remember when making a shrimp boil is, while it’s a supremely easy recipes , it takes patience and timing to get everything cooked to perfection. Potatoes and shrimp will not cook in the same amount of time, so a watchful eye on your pot is necessary.

In a large stockpot with a lot of water, this could take up to 15 minutes. When that’s boiling, add the potatoes and onions – they need the most cook time and will benefit from all that delish flavor infusion. Let those boil until the potatoes begin to feel tender when poked with a fork, about 10 minutes, then add the smoked sausage.
Boil the sausage with everything for 5-8 minutes and resist the urge to steal one from the pot. Cut fresh ears of corn in half (or use frozen cobs if you’re so inclined) and add them to the pot, boiling them for another 7 minutes or so.

At this point, test to make sure everything is almost ready to go. Poke the potatoes and look for doneness. Make sure the corn is cooked.
If all is well, turn down the heat add the shrimp. Cover the pot, let it all cook for about 2 minutes, then remove the pot from the heat and let it sit undisturbed for 10 minutes. The shrimp will continue to cook in the residual heat of the broth, and the flavors will infuse.
