I love cooking anything in the crockpot, why I had never thought of making my favorite dish, Cajun Style Smothered Potatoes in the crockpot is beyond me. I saw a recipe for crockpot Cajun Style Smothered Sausage, Potatoes, and Shrimp on Youtube and had to try it, after all, I love all seafood and gumbo and I also love my crockpot so it was an obvious match made in Heaven for me. The recipe couldn’t be easier, I just threw all these ingredients into the crockpot, no pre-cooking necessary. You just dump all your ingredients in the crockpot along with your seasonings and come back a few hours later to a delicious meal. I like to use Tony’s Cajun seasoning but there are so many good ones on the market today, Zatarain’s is also excellent, but you can be sure whichever ones you use this crockpot Cajun-style smothered sausage, potatoes, and shrimp recipe is going to be delicious and it will feed a group of hungry family members or party guests no problem. The ingredients are really simple and straightforward along with the whole idea of this excellent recipe.
- 1 pound smoked sausage (coined)
- 2 pounds russet potatoes (diced in 1/2 pieces)
- 1 onion (diced)
- 1 bell pepper (diced)
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp onion powder
- 1 Tbsp Cajun or Creole seasoning
- 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 Tbsp liquid shrimp and crab boil concentrate (garlic and onion flavor)
- 1 pound uncooked shrimp
Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray, add sausage, potatoes, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Then sprinkle all seasonings on top. Mix the crab boil with the chicken broth and pour over the top. Then cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours.
Then add your peeled shrimp and cook for an additional 20 minutes until shrimp are completely cooked. Garnish with green onions.
This recipe is excellent, I highly recommend it.
