Keep it simple…

Spiced boiled peel and eat shrimp, a favorite salad, maybe a baked potato or baked sweet…. that’s the ticket for a warm spring night when I don’t really feel like cooking.  The shrimp are made ahead so they have at least a couple hours to cool in the boiling liquid.

The BEST boil I’ve made to date includes the following spices:

2-3 bay leaves

1T mixed peppercorns

1t celery salt

1/8C + 1T Old Bay seasoning

1/2T Chili powder

Bring to boil in 1 and1/2 quarts water. Add 1lb. raw shrimp. Boil until shrimp are pink.  Cool in the boiling liquid.


Enjoy with a light salad of lettuce, cubed avocado, sliced red onion and grapefruit segments. Dress with a vinaigrette made of evoo, lime juice, a splash of orange or grapefruit, dijon mustard, salt and pepper.  Fresh cracked pepper over the top is a must! 

 So nice, so light, so happy…
