    MamaMeg's Note:

    This recipe is from Emerils cookbook "Emeril's kitchens", which is basically a compilation of recipes from all of his restaurants. This one is from Delmonico's Steakhouse. It is really easy prepare despite all the ingredients. It is absolutely the best shrimp cocktail I have ever eaten.

      These shrimp were fantastic. I used liquid crab boil because that is what I had. I didn't use any where near 3 gallons of water probably closer to one gallon and 10 Tbsp liquid Crab Boil. I had already made my sauce which was almost the same recipe as this one so I can say the sauce is fantastic also. Thanks for a great recipe.
