Ingredients

2 quarts water
1/4 Cup Kosher Salt
1/4 Cup Sugar

Soak 30-40 Minutes

Drain, Rinse and Cook.


Always remember when you cook shrimp if you overcook them they become rubbery and tough.



Shrimp cook in a matter of minutes, like 4 minutes a side. They will turn a nice pink color, don't cook more than 10 minutes total.



I hate the precooked shrimp worse than poison, does that tell you how good they are.

Notes

This brine works excellent for a tender and sweet shrimp every time.
