Shrimp Bake

We all need a quick dinner here and there, life is busy and tough sometimes. I’m all about weekday dinners that can be prepared in an hour or less. My children are adults now, but I raised them alone while working full time, so you better believe I had an arsenal of fast recipes.  This is an example of how to make a great dinner in minimum time and effort for busy people. Or lazy ones! It’s all good!


What you’ll need;

  • 1 pound of medium shrimp
  • 1 pound turkey sausage
  • 1 1/2 pounds small potatoes (red and white)
  • 1 package of frozen corn nibbles (8 pieces)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
  • salt and pepper


Cut the potatoes in half and boil them for 20 minutes in salted water. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl combine cooked potatoes, shrimp, sausage and corn with the olive oil and Old Bay Seasoning. Using 2 baking sheets or aluminum pans, line each one with sheets of aluminum foil. Divide the contents of the bowl into 2 pans. Add salt and pepper.

Seal the aluminum foils tightly. Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. And voilà!

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
