The PERFECT Shrimp Cocktail

Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

The secret to perfectly cooked shrimp, according to our own Shrimp Master, Bernie, is:

  • Devein jumbo shrimp using a shrimp knife (available at the market), then peel except for the last segment above the tail
  • Bring water in a large pot to a rolling boil
  • Put shrimp into the boiling water, stirring often so tails curl up nice and tight
  • Before the water comes back to a full boil (3-4 minutes, until shrimp is just opaque in the center at the thickest part), remove the shrimp and drain in a colander, then submerge the hot shrimp into a bath of ice water to shock and stop cooking
  • Chill and arrange on a plate with cocktail sauce, we make our own that’s available to buy, and lemon wedges
