Serves/Makes:2

Ingredients
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). large shrimp
  • 1 bunch spring onions, roots cut off but left whole
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) whole black peppercorns
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 fresh limes, cut in half

  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Old Bay seasoning
Preparation
  • Place all but shrimp in a pot of water/beer (pot big enough to allow shrimp to roll around during the boil).
  • Be sure and squeeze limes into water then toss them in pot.
  • Allow water/beer to come to a boil.
  • Add shrimp.
  • Cook just until shrimp turns pink and comes to the top (about 2 minutes).
  • Remove everything with a large strainer.
  • Place in bamboo steamer and serve.
Comments
I know you asked for steamed shrimp but I think the shrimp has a better flavor when actually cooked in the liquid. I then remove everything and serve in a bamboo steamer. Makes a fun and nice presentation.

Cocktail sauce - ketchup, lime juice, horseradish, Worchestershire - mix according to taste.
