It is so quick and easy to boil shrimp perfectly, people mess it up!

Tools:  pot, strainer, slotted spoon, big bowl, ice

Ingredients: large wild-caught shrimp, lemon, creole seasoningapple cider vinegar

Optional Ingredients: Lager Beer


Put pot with water, whole squeezed lemon (put the whole thing in after squeezing), 1/8 to 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar, 1/2 lager beer if you choose, and creole seasoning (the more you add the more flavor will infuse) in the water and bring to a boil

Put strainer in one side of your sink and large bowl with ice water in the other


Once water is boiling, add shrimp, give it a quick stir

Note: after shrimp are added the water may not boil again, don’t worry

Let cook for a couple of minutes and stir again – stir enough to make sure the shrimp aren’t sticking

It won’t’ take long…..

Once you see 1 or 2 of the shrimp float to the surface – immediately drain (to avoid overcooking) and then dump into the bowl of ice water (to stop the internal cooking process)


For a quick and easy dipping sauce: Mix ketchup and prepared horseradish, to taste.

Done! Eat! Enjoy!
