How pretty is this corn?  Don’t you wish you could just eat it right away?  LOL!  Besides it’s good looks, Sunshine Sweet Corn is also non-GMO, extra tender, and regulated for quality control.  Good.  I like food that I can trust.

Preparation for this recipe is easy.  Wash the cabbage and potatoes.  Cut the onion into eight wedges.  Quarter four small thin-skinned potatoes, like these red and white potatoes.  Don’t using baking potatoes.  Cut four ears of corn into 2-inch pieces and cut half of a small cabbage into 4 wedges.  You need a pound of shrimp and you don’t even have to peel it until you’re ready to eat it!

This couldn’t be much easier.  Add everything to a pot of water, plus beer and a few tablespoons of seafood seasonings.  Don’t want to add beer?  That’s not a problem, just use water.
