What began as a pre theatre dinner gathering turned out to be a fun filled evening with a group of our mermaids! We had actually planned to have a little “we’re glad our friend Mary Kay Andrews is in town” party and then head off to the YMCA gym to watch the little play written by one of our locals theatre folks. But Mary Kay couldn’t make it down so the party must go on! In fact about an hour into the evening someone say- hey where’s Mary Kay! And we raised a glass of wine to toast her . I served fresh, fresh, fresh (right off the shrimp boats today fresh) shrimp. And Wine. And assorted goodies others brought. The shrimp were delicious!
Here is the recipe that will make your company swoon. Of course it helps when they are this fresh, but still a easy and yummy way to cook shrimp.
Bring a pot of water to a full boil. Dump your shrimp in the pot and let cook for maybe 3 minutes and they turn pink. Take them off the stove and pour into a colander. Immediately put ice on top to cool. Let sit for about 5 minutes. Pour into a big bowl and sprinkle with a very free hand Old Bay Seasoning. Toss and add one lemon cut into quarters. Serve with home made cocktail sauce!
