DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a large pot with the water and add in onion, celery, garlic, bay leaves, peppercorns, chile pepper, lemon, parsley, thyme, and a large handful of salt (the water should approximate sea water in saltiness).
  • Bring to a hard boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  • Add the shrimp and increase heat to high; once the court bouillon has returned to a simmer, remove from the heat and set aside, covered, for 5 minutes.
  • Drain the shrimp in a colander, reserving the court bouillon for another use.
  • Transfer the shrimp to a small baking sheet and refrigerate.
  • When the shrimp are cool, peel and devein.
  • Cocktail sauce-combine all the ingredients in a small bowl; taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more horseradish, hot sauce and/or lemon or lime juice to taste.
  • Transfer to a small serving bowl.
  • To serve, put the bowl of cocktail sauce in the center of a serving plate and arrange the shrimp and lemon wedges around it.
