6 baby red potatoes 

Kosher salt

2 tablespoons crab boil seasoning, such as Old Bay

1 ear corn, shucked, cut into 1-inch rounds

Nonstick spray

4 tablespoons butter

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 teaspoons hot sauce

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

10 large shrimp, peeled and deveined

8 ounces fully cooked smoked pork sausage, sliced into1/2-inch-thick rounds

Lemon wedges, for serving


Special equipment:
4 long metal skewers
  1. Add the potatoes to a saucepan and cover with cold water. Add a big pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of the seafood seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the corn in the last 5 minutes. Drain and let cool. 
  2. Spray a grill pan with nonstick spray and heat to medium-high heat. 
  3. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Once foaming, add the garlic and saute until fragrant. Stir in the hot sauce and vinegar. Remove from the heat and reserve half for dressing the skewers after they are cooked and the other half to glaze the shrimp as they grill.
  4. Divide and thread the shrimp, sausage, potatoes and shrimp onto long metal skewers. Set on a baking sheet. Brush the reserved glaze on the shrimp, and then grill, brushing and turning on occasion, 6 to 8 minutes total. Serve the skewers with lemon wedges and drizzle with the reserved sauce.
