Steamed Shrimp

Wow, it was 80 degrees today in San Diego, and it's suppose to be in the 100's tomorrow! The last thing you want to do on hot days like these is cook in a hot kitchen...or even cook at all. This is when fast cooking proteins, like seafood, become your best friends. And shrimp is just perfect for hot summer days. I have to tell you that I'm a fan of Old Bay Seasoning now, because you can use the seasoning on pretty much all seafood. Oh, and if you want to pair this dish with beer, try Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus. I'm not a beer fan, but this combination is so refreshing!


  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon OLD BAY SEASONING
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pound fresh shrimp, with shells on

In saucepan, combine first 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Add shrimp, stir gently. Cover; steam until tender, about 5 minutes. Immediately remove from heat and drain shrimp. Serve steamed shrimp with a side of cocktail sauce and melted butter.

On the eastern shore of Maryland, we put Old Bay seasoning on our corn-on-the cob! YUM....
