Shrimp Feast

It's not really a feast, but it was a great dinner.

Makes 2 servings
Nutritional info: 370 calories, 7g fat, 7g fiber

2 qts water
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 (12oz) can beer, optional
2 TB seafood seasoning, such as Old bay
2 medium red potatoes, cut into quarters
1 medium sweet onion, cut into wedges
1/3 pound turkey kielbasa or lean smoked sausage, cut into 2” lengths
2 ears fresh corn on the cob, cut in half
¾ pound large raw shrimp

Combine water, salt, beer, if using, and seafood seasoning in a large stockpot. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes and onion; cook over high heat 8 minutes. Add sausage and cook over high heat 5 minutes. Add corn and boil 7 minutes. Stir in shrimp and cook 4 minutes, or until opaque in the center. Drain well and ladle into large bowls.
Serve with cocktail sauce and lemon wedges, if desired.

I didn’t have beer so I didn’t use it. You could make it less calories by eliminating the beer and turkey sausage or adding it for your family and not eating it!! It added a different element that I liked a lot.
