Cook the potatoes for five minutes, and add the sausage and onions. Allow the water to boil, and cook for 15 minutes. Add the corn, bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are ready.

Add the shrimp to the mix, bring to a boil, and cook until the shrimp turns pink. Drain the water and serve warm.
