Looks like a crawfish boil but in an oven.

You're going to overcook the shrimp.

I would try the recipe as written before trying to "improve" it.

Shostie: Looks like a crawfish boil but in an oven.


Since it's shrimp, I would call it a low country boil. Standard fare in Charleston and Savannah.

She Would do better to just combined everything but the shrimp in a large stock pot and boil it together until the potatoes are done, then add the shrimp for just a few minutes. She would also do better to use half a can of Old Bay seasoning in there.

It needs a lot more seasoning. More salt especially the potatoes will soak ot right up. And I hope you have good andoullie

Quarter the potatoes, and salt the water heavily. Once the potatoes have boiled, rough them up with a fork to create a lot of crispy edges.

Sometimes Creole seasoning is loaded with salt depending on the brand, so maybe that is why there is "just a pinch" of regular salt in the recipe.

I would probably add more garlic also for a pan that size.

Cajun seasoning instead of Creole would be an interesting switch.

I would also add a good baguette to this recipe.

I'd roll with it other than a few simple changes.
Not enough garlic.
Don't use spray on on the baking pan, it leaves residue that stick and burn. Just dump a little oil of choice and smear it around with a bit of paper towel.
Needs thyme.

As for "needs more spices", creole seasoning can be both deceptively hot and salty.
Best go slow, it can always be supplemented.

Let us know how it went.

I made this a few months back. They're almost the same recipe.

One thing I added was some crab legs I got on sale. It was delicious.

cyberspacedout: The word "bake" is a verb, not a noun. Usage as the latter doesn't exactly imply a well-crafted recipe.


Hint: You can find a dictionary online.

TL;DR
Everything on the half sheet precooked but the shrimp. Garlic and lime  and butter.  Hottest oven you can

Never really thought bell peppers brought much to the party, so to speak. Maybe substitute some jalapenos or anaheims?

NINEv2: I see the creole/cajun has been covered. Alternatively a blend of salt, chili powder and garlic with a little cumin and black pepper might be nice.


Try this on corn on the cob with mayo if you get a chance.

TFA is ignorant - 100% use baking parchment for (a.) moar crispetty-crunchety, and (2.) so you don't ruin your farking pan forever.

but otherwise yeah, most of the farkers have pretty good advice here!

since years ago, when I buy spice mixes I tend to go for Frontier-brand b/c there's no salt. because I'm a cheapskate and why should I pay for salt I already have, but moreso I want to control the exact flavor and also the sodium-level. looks like they do sell a Cajun mix (paprika, onion, garlic, marjoram, thyme, fennel, cumin, cayenne) - but not a Creole version. hmm... I may need to be my own fark personal shopper and have to get that one...
