Step 1

Simmer the potatoes.
Fill a large pot with water and place over high heat. Add the seafood seasoning, onions, garlic, and lemon halves and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes, reduce heat to low and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 15-20 minutes.

Cook the shrimp.
Add the corn and sausages to the pot and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the shrimp, cover and let stand until the strimp are opaque, about 4 minutes. Pour the contents of the pot into a colander to drain. Return the shrimp, sausage, and vegetables to the pot, or place in a large serving bowl and serve.
