Shrimp Cocktail

What You’ll Need:

  • large pot or skillet
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • large handful of parsley
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • shrimp/prawn of your choice. We used Hawaiian Blue Prawn.


1.) Add 1 inch of water to the bottom of your large pot or skillet.  Add 1 stalk of celery, a handful of fresh parsley, a sprinkling of Old Bay seasoning  and a hearty pinch of salt to the water. 

2.) Bring the water to boiling, add your shrimp.  The shrimp will cook quickly – only for about three to four minutes – depending on size.

3.) Remove from heat and drain.  Serve hot or cold with your favorite cocktail sauce.  Our favorite cocktail sauce consists of a few tablespoons of the hottest horseradish we can find mixed with ketchup and a squeeze of lemon.

Next time you are serving shrimp cocktail – choose to make Easy Shrimp Cocktail over that dreaded shrimp ring – your guests will be thankful.
