Frequently Asked Questions:

Is there one type of potato that works best for this recipe?

I prefer to use Russet potatoes in this dish. There is no reason other than flavor, so any potato will do just fine.

Should I use Creole or Cajun seasoning?

Believe me, it really does not matter which one you use. As long as it is sprinkled evenly over the ingredients. The food itself contributes the most to flavor here.

Why do you say this recipe is so simple?

Again trust me, I prefer the dump as I go method of cooking. It makes life so much simpler for me, as it will for you!

Can I make this ahead?

Well, you do want to make it in advance. It will need to cook in the crock pot for four hours. If you have time, you can prepare all the ingredients the night before then it will make it easier when you put the recipe together to let it cook.

Why do I need to wait so long before I add the shrimp?

Shrimp is a finicky seafood. If it is undercooked, you will get sick. If it is overcooked it tastes terrible and is tough meat. Waiting until the last 20 minutes before serving is the best time to add the shrimp. It will be cooked to perfection at that point.
