Boiled Shrimp

Boiled shrimp (crab, crawfish, whatever)

Water in a LARGE pot

3# shrimp

2 oz. cayenne

2 oz. Tabasco

3 garlics, peeled

3 lemons, quartered

Bay leaves, a few

2 onions, quartered

2 oz. salt

Bottle of Zatarain’s crab boil

Optional: new potatoes (pierce with fork), corn on the cob

Put in everything except the shrimp. Bring to a boil. If using potatoes, wait until they’re done. Put in the shrimp for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Let soak until they’re as spicy as you like.



  1. You forgot a step: Open windows for ventilation! Even in February.
