last week, a neighbor dropped off a bag of sweet corn and i had no idea what to do with it. fast-forward to a slowish day at work where i actually got to catch up on my feedly for basically the first time in four years and i came across this shrimp boil recipe which includes steamed sweet corn.
of course, i had potatoes and frozen shrimp but wasn’t sure what to do instead of the andouille sausage. thankfully, i’d recently splurged on a bunch of frozen food from costco and grabbed a big ol’ box of morningstar farms veggie sausage patties (rodney recently tried some at mickey’s for brunch and loves them). so, i layered the potatoes, sausage patties, and corn; threw in the old bay seasoning, poured water over and turned on the slow cooker.
five hours later, i popped the shrimp in for 10 minutes and served it up with a packet of rice and some melted butter.
it was so amazingly simple and delicious and perfect.
also, i mostly halved the recipe and we still had leftovers.
