I substituted the shrimp for crawfish and added crab legs separately. Such a great recipe and super easy to make in the pressure cooker. No one will know that you didn't actually do a traditional seafood boil

Full disclosure: it's crawfish season, so instead of shrimp, we used this recipe to do crawfish, keeping everything else exactly the same. Even used an Abita Turbo Dog for the beer to keep it feeling a bit Louisiana bayou. In the spirit of a crawfish boil, shared the rest of the sixer with guests. Was delicious. Those potatoes!

I've only ever made low country boil with seafood seasoning, so I enjoyed this version with Cajun spices and beer. Super easy to make and the potatoes didn't fall apart.

So good! I used frozen corn and andouille sausage for this boil. I also used extra Cajun seasoning because I like mine extra spicy. Simple, straightforward and easy to make without lacking flavor! The beer was also a nice touch!

I made this low country shrimp boil for a football party and it was so good. I love new potatoes, and they came out so tender! Next time I'll probably add crab as well! This recipe was enough for me and my husband (and we ate a lot!).
