  2. Next add sausage and sweet corn to the boiling water and cook for another 10 minutes until the red potatoes are tender.
  3. Using a slotted spoon remove the sweet corn on the cob, red potatoes and sausage from the boiling water and place on a large serving platter.
  4. Next add shrimp and snow crab legs and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Be sure not to over cook the crab legs and shrimp. Follow the preparation instructions given to you at purchase and you'll be okay. Remove the cooked shrimp and crab legs from boiling water.
  5. Finally neatly arrange all of your cooked foods onto a large serving platter and enjoy your seafood boil. I'm sure you'll enjoy this shrimp and crab boil recipe.

Here are two other variations of this crab and shrimp boil recipe:

1. Crab boil recipe - If you prefer not to add shrimp you could easily modify this recipe to a crab boil recipe by adding 2 more pounds of crab.

2. Shrimp boil recipe - Just drop the crab legs and add one additional pound of shrimp.
