Spicy Boiled Shrimp in Shell

Spicy Boiled Shrimp

Handful of fresh Cilantro

Fresh Rosemary if available or dried

1 Sliced Jalapeno


3 cloves of garlic sliced

Scallion sliced including the green parts

1 lb of large shrimp with shell, with head okay.

½ Lime

½ C of Sake

Fill your vessel with water, add the herbs, peppers, garlic, scallions, pepper and sake.

Bring the broth to a brisk boil.



Cook until pink 4 to 6 minutes.

Quickly drain all the ingredients and immerse the shrimp in an iced water bath.

Put in dish and serve.

I like to garnish with fresh cilantro and limes.


Nice dipping sauces to have handy:

A melted butter and garlic.

Tomato based seafood cocktail sauce 

Soy with fresh ginger and scallion.
