Peggy’s Peel & Eat Shrimp photo-22

  • One and a half pounds large uncooked shrimp (the size we like are 26/30 shrimp per pound; approx $23 for wild shrimp @ Whole Foods)
  • 2 Tb Old Bay Seasoning (30% less sodium)
  • 2 Tb Apple Cider Vinegar

Add seasoning and vinegar to pot of water.

Bring water to boil.

Add shrimp.

Cook 3 minutes or until pink.  DO NOT OVERCOOK or they become chewy!

Feeds about 4.  Delicious!

Peggy’s Cocktail Sauce  

  • 1/2 cup low sodium ketchup
  • 4 Tb worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 cup horseradish – add more of this if you want it to be spicy
  • 2 Tb lemon juice

Measurements are estimated, she’s been making it so long, she just throws it all in a bowl!
