Super Simple Shrimp Seafood Boil for One

Shrimp Seafood Boil for One

This meal calls to me a lot…normally when I have an egg, some potatoes and corn laying around. This is awesome if you just need to cook for one.

I usually make this for lunch. One of the perks of working at home 🙂

Before cooking I like to peel the shrimp and cut the potatoes and sausage into bite size pieces. Corn off the cob makes it easy to put in a bowl and eat with a fork. No mess and you can eat this while still working!
