How to Boil Shrimp 101

I always get raves on my boiled shrimp. Everyone asks me how I’ve prepared them because they’re so juicy and tender. My answer…boil for only 1 minute!

Add Old Bay to a large pot of water and bring it to a rapid boil. Add your shrimp and give a good stir. Leave the shrimp in the water for one minute. The water should never come back to a boil. Immediately drain the shrimp in a colander and toss with sea salt and more Old Bay if desired. I usually spread out the shrimp on a tray and chill in the refrigerator to stop the cooking process.

* Note: I always peel and devein my shrimp with the tail on prior to cooking.
