Simple but delightful recipe for preparing shrimp.Taken from Eat Greek Tonight


  1. Cook the shrimp with the Old Bay seasoning, or salt if not available but be careful not to overcook.
  2. When done, drain shrimp and place in a platter and drizzle a good grade of extra virgin olive oil and juice of 1 lemon, sprinkle with oregano.
  3. This would be great with a greek salad and a crusty loaf of bread.

Very nice recipe. I added some red pepper flakes to the water as well as 2 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning. I used 1 tbsp olive oil and a bit more oregano. These were enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

These were just fantastic! I live near Maryland so I love anything with Old Bay Seasoning on it and the flavor combinations were different and delicious!

I made this yesterday for DH and some of his friends from work while they were watching World Cup games. This was a nice change of pace from the usual beer-boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce and crackers. I did use a fair amount more than a pinch of Old Bay seasoning (probably about 1 tbs), just because we love shrimp cooked with lots of Old Bay. We'll definitely be having this again! Thanks for posting!
