Old Bay Peel 'N Eat Shrimp

Old Bay Peel 'N Eat Shrimp

I could eat these Old Bay Peel ‘N Eat Shrimp all day long. Hot or cold, it doesn’t matter to me. With cocktail sauce. With clarified butter. Or by themselves. I don’t care, just get me a basket of shrimp.

  • Combine the vinegar, water, 1/3 cup of the Old Bay seasoning, garlic and peppercorns in a large pot.
  • Bring to a rapid boil over medium high heat.
  • Add the shrimp. Cover and cook 2-4 minutes or until the shrimp are pink. Do not over cook.
  • Drain shrimp but do not rinse.
  • Transfer shrimp to a large bowl. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons (or more) of Old Bay and toss gently to coat.
  • Serve with cocktail sauce and clarified butter, if desired, for dipping. These shrimp are also great cold.
