Steamed shrimp are just not the same in Tampa restaurants. The area has plenty of large golf shrimp to offer, only when you order them at a restaurant they're very lacking in flavor (I think their mostly boiled). I wanted to show my boyfriend the way they should be prepared, and by that I mean the "Maryland" way! I found this recipe online and used it as a guide. It makes the most delicious full flavored steamed shrimp. I wanted to post it for others to enjoy in it’s exact copy, however, it is a huge amount. I’ve never made the full ten pounds but you can adjust it down. I usually buy about 2 lbs of large to jumbo shrimp, I never have kosher salt so I just use a dash of regular, 1 / 2 a lemon, one beer, a 1 / 8 cup of the vinegar and lots of old bay. Two tips I have are, you can never have enough old bay and slivers of onions tossed in with the shrimp will add extra flavor. Once I’ve really perfected my own recipe I’ll post it using more reasonable portions.
