Tips for the best slow cooker shrimp boil:
Make sure your crock pot is large enough. The corn takes up a lot of room so this isn’t the recipe to use the small crockpot. Break out the large one!
If you find the crock pot is too full, you can take out the corn when you add the shrimp. This will help.
Don’t skip the Old Bay seasoning. This is the key to the shrimp boil so it is super important!

Shrimp, corn and more come together for a meal everyone will love in this Crock Pot Shrimp Boil Recipe. This slow cooker shrimp boil is a must try!
- 1 1/2 Pound Small Red-Skinned Potatoes Quartered
- 1 Pound Andouille Sausage Cut into 1 inch pieces
- 3 ears corn shucked, cut into smaller pieces (I cut it into thirdor use Frozen Corn on the Cob
- 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic

- 1 Medium Lemon - Halved
- 1 32 oz Container of Chicken Broth
- 2 pounds of large raw shrimp Peeled and Deveined with Tails still on
- 4 Tablespoons Butter melted
- Parsley Leaves for serving
Put the potatoes in a single layer at the bottom of the crock pot.
Add sausage, corn, minced garlic and old bay seasoning to the top of the potatoes.
Squeeze the lemon halves over these ingredients and put the halves in the crock pot as well.
Pour the chicken broth over the ingredients. This broth should come up about halfway up the corn. Do not stir at this point.
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
Next add the shrimp and gently stir in with the other ingredients. You can remove the corn if the crock pot is too full to add the shrimp. Cook until the shrimp is done and changes to the pink color - usually about 10-15 minutes.
Strain all the ingredients and transfer to a sheet pan.
Pour melted butter over all the ingredients topped with chopped parsley.
Serve and Enjoy!
