Delicious recipe! I use beer instead of water when I boil my shrimp and added 2 chicken bouillon cubes to the pot while bring the beer up to a boil. I also felt that the flavor of the 1/4c of Old Bay Seasoning was enough so I deleted the 3/4tsp when making the salad. I also added some crab meat to this salad and omitted the lemon juice and used Ms.Dash lemon pepper seasoning. It was a HUGE hit at the lake this past weekend. Everyone loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
