Peel and Eat Shrimp

A great game day snack. Boiling up a pot of shrimp while watching U of M football was awesome. The Old Bay gives the shrimp great flavor. I found this recipe on Annie’s Eats and it didnt disappoint. I served it with crusty rolls and great cocktail sauce. Nothing is better than game day foods!!!!




2 quarts water
1/2 cup cider vinegar
Black peppercorns
2 bay leaves
1 lb. large shrimp, shells left on-I apparently got the wrong ones at the seafood market..I had raw, shell off shrimp, but it was still great…OPPS! Didnt seem to matter tho..tasted perfect!
Old Bay (or other seafood seasoning)
Lemon wedges and cocktail sauce, for serving

Combine the water, vinegar, peppercorns and bay leaves in a stockpot or large saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Add the shrimp to the boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the water returns to a boil.  Immediately remove from the heat and drain the water.  Remove the bay leaves and toss the shrimp with Old Bay seasoning.  Transfer to a serving platter and serve alongside lemon wedges and cocktail sauce.
