Do you like shrimp? I really love. Recently came across this recipe.Very glad.Steps Step 1In a large steamer pot bring beer and old bay seasoning to a boil Step 2Add shrimp and steam for about 5 minutes or until the have a nice red color. Step 3Cool and serve with cocktail sauce and lemon wedges.
what do you use instead of OLD BAY?
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.
