Boiled Shrimp

I’m very proud of my Crab & Shrimp Boil — amazing how such a quick dish, nothing more than boiling some water, can result in such a full flavor, as if they were grilled or sautéed. Magic! Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce (like sour cream and Herbes de Provence, or mayo with Cajun Seasoning).
