Recipes and Cooking Shrimp and Sausage Boil Be the first to rate & review! Bring an easy-to-share platter of this favorite shrimp boil recipe to the table and everyone will be impressed. We call for smoked kielbasa or andouille sausage for this Cajun seafood boil since it's already cooked, that way you only have to worry about cooking until the shrimp is done without worrying about overcooked shrimp. Toss in the lemon halves last to squeeze over the shrimp and sausage boil for bright fresh flavor.
