Why I Love This Recipe

This is the easiest, and most fool-proof way to steam shrimp. It was told to my mother by a local seafood-monger over 20 years ago, and we haven't had a bad shrimp yet!


Ingredients You'll Need

3 pounds large shrimp
3 tablespoons Old Bay or other seafood seasoning
1 cup cider vinegar
8 cups water
a splash of beer never hurt anyone, either


Directions

Combine water and vinegar.


Bring water to a rolling boil.


Add shrimp and gently stir.


If you have a few fresh herbs on hand, they can be tossed into the water with the shrimp.


Bring the water back up to a boil.


When the water starts to boil again, turn off the heat, and drain the shrimp.


Put shrimp in large bowl, and toss with the seafood seasoning.


I like to serve hot with cocktail sauce lemon wedges.


A garnish of thyme or rosemary finishes it off.
