Place a large stockpot over high heat. Add the vegetable broth, water, beer, ¼ cup old bay, and kosher salt. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium. Carefully add the potatoes to the pot, stirring occasionally until just fork tender, about 15 minutes.
Add the corn, stir it in and cook for 3 minutes, stir occasionally.
Add the kielbasa, stir it in and cook for 4 minutes, stir occasionally.
Add the shrimp, stir it in and cook for 3-4 minutes until it is opaque and cooked through, stir occasionally.
Strain the boil, reserve some of the liquid for dipping if desired.
Add the melted butter to a very large bowl along with the remaining 1 teaspoon of old bay, and fresh chopped parsley, if using.
Add the strained shrimp boil to the bowl and toss with the butter sauce.
Serve immediately with more parsley for garnish, optional, and lemon wedges to serve.
Resist the urge to over salt. The old bay, salt, and sausage which will sufficiently flavor the boil as stated in the recipe. Then we are tossing in salted butter at the end. If you are not sure, right before serving taste and adjust seasoning if you wish.
You can use Yukon Gold potatoes in place of the reds.
Use cajun seasoning in place of the old bay.
You can omit the beer if you like, if you are using beer we like to use a lager.
This can have a dipping sauce, however it is super flavorful by itself. If you want a dipping sauce use some of the reserved stock, melted butter or cocktail sauce.
