Shrimp-Boil Kebabs


With Cajun-inspired flavors of hot sauce and Old Bay seasoning, these lively combinations of tastes, colors, and textures is just as fun to make as it is to eat.

  • 1/2 pound small new potatoes
  • 2 small ears corn, cut into 1 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1/2 pound andouille, cut into 1-inch rounds
  • 1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 teaspoons hot-pepper sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. In a medium pot, bring potatoes to a boil in salted water over medium-high. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, about 12 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Alternately thread potatoes, corn, andouille, and shrimp onto four 8-inch skewers.

  2. Heat a grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. In a small bowl, combine butter, hot-pepper sauce, and Old Bay Seasoning. Grill kebabs, turning and brushing with butter mixture occasionally, until shrimp are opaque throughout and corn is tender and beginning to char, about 8 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.

Cook's Notes

Soak wooden skewers in hot water for 15 minutes before grilling, or use metal ones. No grill? Broil on second highest rack using metal skewers. Cooking times are the same.

    Old Bay is NOT a cajun inspired seasoning. Far from it.

    This looks amazing, but FOUR teaspoons of Tabasco? Even with the butter that's a lot!

    Great recipe to entertain with. Very fun. Made these several times & they were delicious & easy. I doubled the butter & hot sauce mixture. If you are worried about it being too spicy, Old Bay makes a rub that can be used in place of the Old Bay seasoning.
