Poached (Boiled) Shrimp

I know crawfish is the start at this time of year. However, I love to eat shrimp for a change of pace. How about 2 shrimp recipes this week?

2 gallons water

1 cup liquid crab boil

4 tablespoons kosher salt

2 tablespoons fresh black pepper

1 cup dry (powder) crab boil

6 pounds peeled U16-20 shrimp, tails on

5 pounds ice

Place water in a large stock pot; add liquid crab boil, salt, pepper, and dry crab boil and bring to a boil. Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add enough ice to cool the pot; let soak of 10 minutes so shrimp absorb more seasoning. Drain and keep cold until serving.


Creole & Cajun Comfort Food is now available online.

Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!
