    Adding the salt at the end makes these shrimp very easy to peel. The spice is just right, you MUST try these!!

      To 1 gallon of water add sliced lemon, sliced onion, bay leaves and pepper (NOT THE SALT) and boil for 10 minutes. Add the shrimp and boil 3 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately add 2 cups of ice water and salt. Let stand 5 minutes then drain. Enjoy!

      Terrific way to prepare shrimp!! The spice level was great and they truly were easy to peel. This will be my go-to method from now on - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2013 event, recommended by rpgaymer

      Really good recipe. I loved the tartness from the lemon and the mild background heat from the cayenne pepper. And these are indeed very easy to peel!

      This was nicely spiced, and we enjoyed eating it very much. What got me totally pumped about this, though, was the effect of the salt. Omigosh, you weren't kidding when you said it would make the shrimp easy to peel! After pulling off the tail, one little tug on those feeler thingies and the entire shell would just slip off intact. We eat a lot of shrimp and I usually humor (i.e., spoil!) my family by doing the 'dirty work' for them, so I'm a real quick peeler. But I must have set a world record last night! :) Thanks so much for sharing this super-neat trick along with your good recipe.
