Have you ever attended a traditional Southern shrimp boil? Everything is boiled in a big pot and the finished contents are dumped out onto a newspaper-covered table for all to enjoy. The party doesn't require plates, just hungry guests. Well, here's a recipe that brings a Southern Shrimp Boil to YOU!
The ingredients in this recipe are first boiled and then finished in a sheet pan in the oven. Since the ingredients are already nicely distributed in the pan, there is no need to dump it out onto the table when ready to serve... unless, of course, you want to!

1 pound red potatoes
3 ears corn, each cut in half (6 pieces)
1 tablespoon each; melted butter and olive oil

1/2 pound smoked sausage, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges
