Thanks to Christopher Dinwiddie, these shrimp came straight from the boats in Pass Christian, MS…and they were the best ever!
2 lbs. large shrimp, shells-on and heads-on if available
1/4 cup shrimp boil seasoning, either Old Bay or Zatarains…plus more for dipping
1 cup cocktail sauce
1 stick butter, melted
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 2 Tbs. seasoning and the juice of 1 lemon. Turn the heat down to a bare simmer and add the shrimp. Cook for about 2-3 minutes or until cooked through (I always test one before draining them all) and then drain. Place in a large bowl and toss with remaining seasoning and juice of remaining lemon.
Serve with cocktail sauce, extra seasoning spice, melted butter and cold beer
