Whenever I’m in the mood for a spicy shrimp boil, I know I can whip up something delicious in minutes using my SYD Hot rub which contains a good dose of cayenne pepper to give the boiled shrimp that special extra kick. It’s great for sharing with friends or feeding a lot of folks in a party. Add some newly shucked fresh corn and spicy Andouille sausage for some carbs and veggies and you’ll have a complete meal in no time at all. If you want more starch, you can add boiled red potatoes with skin on. You can cut down on the garlic if you’re kissing someone later.
