Shrimp Cocktail

This is how my family make shrimp cocktail, it's really easy and really good! We are big fans of the Old Bay seasoning! Typically shrimp cocktail is served cold, but I love eating the shrimp while they are still a little warm!

  • 1-2 lbs raw deveined shrimp with tail on
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 beer
First mix together your cocktail sauce and set aside (see below). Next thaw your shrimp under cool water in a colander if frozen. Pour vinegar and the beer in a pot large enough to hold all of your shrimp. Place a steaming basket over top. Place your shrimp in the basket once thawed. Sprinkle with the Old Bay seasoning, saving some for after they cook. Cook on Medium High. Once the water comes to a boil, cook until the shrimp turn pink. About 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and place shrimp on a plate, sprinkle with more seasoning. You can refrigerate the shrimp or serve warm with the cocktail sauce.

Cocktail Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup Ketup
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
