steamed shrimp by the piece




We haven't been down for a couple of years, but the last time we were, there were some places that sold steamed shrimp by the piece - 10 or 15 cents each. Do some places still do that? We used to go to the Down Under & get steamed shrimp & a foot or 2 of the onion rings. It was one of my favorite dinners out. We will be down in Rodanthe Sept 1

I use to love the 10c shrimp at the Barefoot Pub is Avon (now Pangea). I thought 10c shrimp was a thing of the past.

That's the classic steam shrimp recipe with one major thing missing...as you add the shrimp to the basket elevated above the steaming water, make sure to add them one layer at a time and dump a generous heaping of old bay to cover the shell-on shrimp, add next layer and dump more old bay, and so on. After 5-6 minutes, grab a shrimp or so from the top and cut into the middle of the flesh and ensure it's opaque throughout so you know it's done. If you see any translucent flesh, put it back in and add a few min to the steaming process.

Sounds good if you leave out that nasty old bay! Thumbs down


RE: steamed shrimp by the piece




what do you use instead of OLD BAY?


RE: steamed shrimp by the piece




Austin's has a mix of spices that they use and sell, but it's basically their version of Old Bay. I do like it better though.

Nothing. I just have never liked old bay.


RE: steamed shrimp by the piece




I'm a Maryland crab aficionado and I don't really care for old bay. Salt, pepper and Chile pepper flakes is just fine for me.

Shrimp shouldn't spend more than 4 minutes in boiled water. Bring salted water to boil, turn off burner, throw in shrimp, wait four minutes, remove. It's way too easy to overcook shrimp. Make sure you have enough water to accommodate the amount of shrimp you add so you don't drop the water temp too much when adding the shrimp.

Also, don't add frozen shrimp to hot water. Thaw first, or better, use fresh shrimp.

Fishheads has .15 shrimp from 4-6 pm. Small, peel and eat, but tasty.

Boiled water? Yikes. Steaming is a much better way to maintain texture and taste.
