Start steamer. Put shrimp in steamer. Cover in Old Bay. Remove from steamer when they are done.

Peel, eat, enjoy.

Thanks for the advice, looks an easy one - don't have an "old bay" , maybe I'll just replace with similar spices.

What kind of shrimp? Do you already have them? Are they raw or precooked? That could make a big difference in how you use them.

Bring a big pot of heavily salted water toa boil.

Dump in shrimp.

Turn off heat.

Stir.

Stir again after a minute.

They are done when pink. Take one out after 3 min to check.

Do NOT overcook

Melt a good amount of butter in a skillet (don't burn the butter) throw the shrimp in, grate some garlic over them and stir. When shrimp turn pink, squeeze half a lemon over the whole thing, and turn out onto a pile of pasta. Garnish with parsley if you have it. Instant Shrimp Scampi.

I always make this recipe but I usually add in some shredded onions with the garlic.

Yes they was precooked, and don't know that kind (I found "king shrimps" and smaller ones at local food store), I took smaller ones. I just steamed them with some spices that I found at home (salt, red/black pepper and dill). That was nothing special, but my daughters was happy

But... today I found few tiny red spots under my smaller daughters skin
I hope nothing serious Allergy on shrimps???
