Ingredients

  • 1 serrano or jalapeno chile, halved lengthwise
  • 2 celery stalks, halved
  • 1 medium onion, quartered through stem end
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons seafood seasoning, plus more for serving
  • 1 pound red new potatoes
  • 2 ears corn, husks and silks removed, quartered
  • 1 pound smoked andouille sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound large shell-on shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon hot-pepper sauce

Directions

  1. In a large pot, combine chile, celery, onion, garlic, 1 tablespoon seafood seasoning, and 10 cups water; bring to a boil. Add potatoes and reduce to a rapid simmer. Cook until potatoes are almost tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Add corn and sausage to pot. Cook until potatoes and corn are cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove pot from heat.

Add butter, 1 tablespoon seafood seasoning, hot sauce, and reserved cooking liquid and toss to combine. Serve with more seafood seasoning.
