DIRECTIONS

  • in a deep frying pan or pot add the water, vinegar and beer.
  • Sprinkle old bay, red pepper flakes and celery seed to cover the top of the liquid.
  • when it starts to boil add enough shrimp to cover the top of the water, you don't want to crowd them.
  • boil till the tails start to curl (5 to 7 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp, take out when they start to curl or you will over cook them).
  • add water, beer and spices as needed for the next batch, to keep the liquid deep enough for the shrimp to float.
