- Ready In:
- Use a medium sized cooking pot, filled halfway or more with water, and bring to a boil on your range.
- Since you will want to eat this immediately, set your condiments (ground horseradish, horseradish sauce [the white one works best], lemon slices, and/or salt) and place-settings out while the water comes to a boil. The adventurous may want to try a dab of wasabi.
- Add shrimp to boiling water. Leave in water for 40-45 seconds. DO NOT OVERCOOK! Drain in colander immediately, and serve hot. This is best shelled as one eats, and the diner will dip each shelled shrimp into the salt or other condiment of choice.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I joined this site back in 2007 when it was Recipezaar. I cook 90% of my own food from scratch, and have lost 40 pounds so doing. I buy most of my summertime/fall veggies from farmers' markets, don't eat much gluten or grains -- but if I am dining with friends, I do eat what I am served, except for tree nuts, commercial baked goods from supermarkets or chains (I react badly to these), and I tend to avoid sweets. Yes, you can train yourself to appreciate sweets far less! I grow some of my own food, but this is limited due to lack of full sun. I also enjoy seafood (brain food!), eggs, and some pastured meats. I'm getting more into fermented foods. Sensitivities: All the tree nuts I actually LIKE. Sigh. Fiddlehead ferns. Liquid egg product. Most commercially baked pastries and donuts and cakes.
