Bring an easy-to-share platter of this favorite Cajun shrimp boil to the table and everyone will be impressed. We call for smoked kielbasa or andouille sausage for this 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.
