Ingredients
  1. 12 cups water
  2. ½ cup salt
  3. ¼ cup crushed red pepper
  4. ¼ cup powdered crab boil, such as Zatarain’s
  5. 1 (4-ounce) bottle liquid crab boil, such as Zatarain’s
  6. 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  7. 3 bay leaves
  8. 2 heads garlic
  9. 8 ears fresh corn, shucked and cut into thirds
  10. 4 pounds jumbo fresh shrimp
  11. 2 quarts ice
  12. Cocktail sauce, as needed (optional)
  13. Rémoulade sauce, as needed (optional)
Instructions
  1. Fill a large pot with 12 cups water; add salt, red pepper, crab boils, oil, bay leaves, and garlic. Place over high heat and bring to a boil; add corn and simmer 20 minutes. Remove corn to a large platter.
  2. Return water to a boil; add shrimp, and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes; stir in 2 quarts of ice, and let shrimp stand for 5 minutes or longer. The longer the shrimp rest in the water, the spicier they become. Strain and serve with corn, cocktail sauce, and rémoulade, if desired.
