Nothing says sunny day eats than a Southern Style Shrimp & Corn Boil. This one pot meal comes together quickly & effortlessly – get a bowl before it’s gone ♥
Spring is here! As the days get warmer and longer we eagerly start coming out of hibernation. It’s time to get outside, enjoy the weather and live again!
Sunny days have us wanting sunny day foods. I crave fresh veggies & fruit! Residing in The Northeast, the veggie pickings are few & far this time of the year. Root vegetables – that’s about it.
I live in a farming county. Corn is one of our biggest crops and we practically live on the stuff while it’s in season. Nothing beats sweet corn, eaten right off the cob, all buttered and salted up. I eagerly look forward to our local season – but we have months to go.
I just recently learned that delicious corn is available at this time of the year. Lucky for us all, Florida’s peak season for corn is April & May – right now! It’s in season & in your stores produce section today!
Florida Sunshine Sweet Corn tastes just like the the best sweet corn I get at my local farm stands! All the corn lovers in my family couldn’t believe how sweet, delicious and tender this corn is!
I found a gold mine of recipes while browsing the Sunshine Sweet Corn website – so many that I’d love to make. One stuck out – one of those recipes that you know you need to have immediately.
Beer-boiled Shrimp & Corn. Nothing says good & simple summer time eating than a Shrimp & Corn boil. Simplicity is key here. Throw everything in a stockpot and boil it to perfection – how easy is that!? This recipe is super versatile as well. Don’t do beer – then don’t add it. Can’t stand cabbage – then skip it. Love corn and shrimp – then add more – I did 🙂
I love Old Bay seafood seasoning – but seriously – don’t get heavy handed with it. Too much of it will ruin a good thing. Serve with your favorite seafood seasoning – if people want more of a kick then they can add a little more to taste.
I couldn’t make this stuff last! It disappeared quick – everyone wanted seconds…and thirds!
Here’s to sunny day eats! Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Eating ♥
