Steamed Old Bay Shrimp


Summer love

When we go to the coast I almost always order steamed shrimp with Old Bay seasoning. It’s one of my favorite ways to eat shrimp and there’s just something great about peeling your shrimp on a table covered with butcher paper while listening to waves crashing against the sand.  These were a perfect end-of-summer treat. We served them with sweet and juicy corn on the cob and buttermilk biscuits.

Steamed Old Bay Shrimp

2 Tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 pound shrimp, in shells

In saucepan, combine first three ingredients. Bring to a boil. Add shrimp and stir gently. Cover and steam until tender, about 3-5 minutes (be careful not to over cook or the shrimp will become tough). Drain, remove shells, and serve.
