This is slowly becoming my new FAVORITE recipe for shrimp cocktail. I do love my Alton Brown brinning recipe for shrimp, but if you are a bit pressed for time, this is a somewhat faster version, that still gives the shrimp great flavor. The shrimp have been perfectly cooked EVERY time I've made this. I adapted this recipe from my "Irish Cooking" cookbook. Feel free to add any spice to the boiling liquid that suits your taste.
Quick, easy and tasty. Can be used as an appetizer for 6 to 12 or a starter course for 6 or a meal for 2. Recipe says 4. Try this with a good spicy gewurztiaminer (what a mouthful just to say it) wine. Excellent.
I just found out that I love scallops. I had them a couple of times and wasn't sold on them . I tried this recipe and now I love them! I didn't use wine ( had none Sprinkled with a little lemon instead.
I found this in our local paper years ago. It is very easy to put together and can easily be doubled or tripled. It would make a nice first course or, coupled with some pasta or rice, a nice and light dinner.
