This cajun sheet-pan “boil” recipe comes from The Defined Dish blog by Alex Snodgrass.

Similar to most low-country boils, this recipe has great, mouthwatering flavors of andouille sausage and shrimp. It’s made those with bust schedules who want a southern classic in thirty-minutes. The Local Palate readers couldn’t agree more and made it one of the most popular recipes for 2021.
