Louisiana Cajun Shrimp Boil

Louisiana Cajun Shrimp Boil

Using our Cajun and Creole blends from our latest collection, the Louisiana Collection, we whipped up a shrimp boil down by the river, just in time for the 4th of July! We want to celebrate our patriotism not by eating processed hotdogs and potato salad, but by exploring other American cuisines that have a history that may be lesser known. So spread out your newspaper, put the plastic utensils away, and get ready to get a little messy!


Yields: a lot of food! invite your friends!
