This was great! The recipe was very easy and simple to follow and the ingredients were not even expensive. I purchased everything at Wal-Mart for a very reasonable price. Since it was my first time and I was only making it for six people, I cut the ingredients in half. Everything turned out well and everyone was pleased with the taste, especially the potatoes, corn and shrimp! I will definitely be making more of this dish.

This was so delicious! Had to cook it in two batches since it wouldn't all fit in my stockpot! All of the ingredients were pretty expensive, but there were a lot of leftovers so it was worth it.

I made this for the first time tonight and it was wonderful! I was only cooking for three people, so I cut the shrimp and potatoes to 2 pounds and only used 4 ears of corn and two packages of sausage. I left everything else the same and it was so yummy and there is plenty left over for dinner tomorrow and probably the next night, it really makes a lot. I wanted to see if I liked it before making for a group. It definitely lived up to my expectations.
