Spicy Boiled Shrimp w/ Remoulade Sauce

Here's another spicy Cajun favorite that is really popular at my house. With the warmer weather upon us, it's time to think cool, think pool, and think light. It's so easy to fire up the boiling pot or the grill on the patio, in the evenings and it keeps the kitchen nice and cool. I was browsing through my summer recipe collection and came upon this wonderful recipe for Remoulade Sauce that my friend, Gail, gave me. Her boyfriend has a crawfish pond and his buddy is a shrimper, and they frequently bring over tons of crawfish, shrimp, and crabs, to boil on her patio. When she calls me and says, " they're on the way over", then you can bet that I say, " I'm on the way over, too" ! Oh, the life of a Cajun, is oh so good ! Enjoy !

Spicy Boiled Shrimp


3 lbs. fresh jumbo shrimp
1 cup white wine
2 tbs.'s salt
1 tbs. Louisiana brand Crab and Shrimp Boil
or 2 tbs.'s Cajun seasoning per pound
1 tbs. Old Bay seasoning per pound
2 onions, quartered
2 lemons, quartered
4 bay leaves

In a large pot, place the seasonings, wine, onions, lemons, and bay leaves. Add enough water to cover the shrimp + 2 inches and bring to a boil. Boil the seasoned water for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and continue to boil, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat , cover and allow to steep for 10 to 20 minutes, depending how spicy you like it. Drain and set aside and allow to cool.

Now that's what I'm talking about! Life doesn't get any better than sitting around with friends peeling boiled shrimp, crawfish or picking crabs.

Great remoulade sauce recipe too!
