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.
