From the Test Kitchen

In the coastal regions of the Southern U.S., seafood boils are a way of life. Families gather to enjoy the delicious bounty of shellfish and hearty vegetables, typically boiled all together. In this inspired recipe, to build their individual flavors, we’re boiling our potatoes separately from our corn on the cob. Then we’re finishing them together—along with seasoned shrimp, lemon juice and butter—in one big pan. (If your pan isn’t big enough, feel free to use a pot!) A condiment of creamy aioli completes this late-summer feast.

Trim off and discard the stem ends of the green beans. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Peel and mince the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Halve the tomatoes. Pick the thyme leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

Rinse the green beans under cold water for 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Pat dry with paper towels; transfer to a separate large bowl.
