"THIS IS A 5 STAR RECIPE WITH SOME CHANGES YOU REALLY DO NOT NEED BUT A CUP OF WATER AND ABOUT A 1/4 CUP OF OLD BAY I PUT MY OLDBAY ON TOP OF MY SHRIMP AND THEN STEAMED ALSO I ADDED ABOUT A 1/4 CUP OF..." See more BEER TO WATER TO STEAM IN, COOKED UNTIL JUST PINK, DO NOT OVERCOOK OR SHRIMP WILL BE RUBBERY."
"This is a pretty good start, however needs some improving in my opinion. The Old Bay called for is way too much - also, when steaming the shrimp, make sure to "steam" - not boil them. Use a colander..." See more inside a large saucepan. I make mine using 12oz. of beer such as Fat Tire Amber Ale or Corona, about 3/4 cup of water, 3T Old Bay and 1/4 white vinegar - bring to a fast boil and reduce to simmer. I also sprinkle a little Old Bay and Zatarain's Blackened Seasoning and a bit of Lemon Pepper over the shrimp - then into the colander (over the gently boiling beer/water/vinegar) they go. Cover and steam depending on size of shrimp. I use fairly large size and will keep the liquid on a low boil so the shrimp steam just until tails begin to curl. Chill or serve immediately."
