If you love shrimp, you’ll love this Easy Shrimp Peel (Shrimp Boil) recipe! Quick and easy to prepare, and so delicious!
- 2 lbs. (or 2 1-lb. bags.) frozen extra-large (or large) raw shrimp, de-veined with shells on
- 3–4 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. pickling spices
- 6 bay leaves
- 1–2 tsp. salt
- Fill a large pot about 2/3 full of water, and add vinegar, pickling spices, bay leaves and salt. Bring to a boil, and boil for 5 minutes (so that the seasonings continue to sink in).
- Then add the shrimp (either frozen or thawed), and stir occasionally. Once the shells are bright pink, and the shrimp inside go from translucent to white, remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon. Serve immediately. (Optional: garnish with lemon and/or melted butter.)
