Nita’s Crab Shack: SteamPot

One of my favorite meals EVEEER.  I love going to Joe’s Crab Shack, everything I’ve had is absolutely delicious and the drinks are the best… well the $2 Hurricanes are!

So when I go I usually get the Ragin’ Cajun Steampot and it’s one of the only restaurant meals that I can eat the whole thing in one sitting.  But sometimes it can get costly and timely since it’s about a 35-40 minute drive from my house.  So I started making them myself.  Well my version since I don’t have the net, and the cool serving pots they bring them in.  Either way, they are still yummy.


I found a video of a Joe’s chef giving a recipe for the garlic steampot on youtube and went from there.  I decided to stick with my ragin’ cajun flavor but I did add a few other ingredients and seasonings as I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the flavor down.steampot2

This steampot includes snow crab clusters, shrimp, cajun andouille sausage, red potatoes and corn on the cob.  I added onions and some minced garlic and a few different seasonings. I realized, to me, the most important part is the post seasoning of the ingredients.steampot3

steampot4Honestly, if you have more tips for me I would love to hear them, because I am looking for the perfect recipe.

2 Snow Crab Clusters

2 Red Potatoes (quartered)

1-2 Andouille Sausage

6 Jumbo Shrimp

1 Whole Corn on the Cob

1/2 large onion (chopped)

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning (more for taste)

1/2 tsp Cajun Seasoning (I used Emeril’s) more to taste

Ideally you want a mesh seafood bag to hold all your ingredients, but bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil.  Add ingredients and boil for 8-10 minutes or when potatoes are tender.  Remove from heat, drain, and sprinkle more old bay and cajun seasoning.  Be careful because too much of both can be salty.  Serve with butter and Enjoy!
