Directions:


To Cook Shrimp:

In a 4-quart stock pot, over medium-high heat, add water and all seasoning ingredients.

Bring to a rolling boil, reduce to simmer and allow to cook 15 minutes for flavors to develop.
Bring mixture back to a rolling boil, add shrimp and stir approximately 3-5 minutes.

At this point, shrimp should be pink and curled.

Test for doneness, being careful not to over-cook.

Once water returns to a boil, shrimp should be perfectly done.

Pour off boiling water and replace with cold tap water to stop the cooking process.

Drain and place shrimp in a serving bowl.

Cover with clear wrap and refrigerate.

Note: This step may be done the night before.


To Prepare Sauce:

Combine all sauce ingredients in a 2-quart mixing bowl and whisk well to incorporate the seasonings.

Once blended, cover and place in the refrigerator, preferably overnight.

A minimum of 4 hours will be required for flavor to develop.

When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator and adjust seasonings to taste.
