Shrimp Boil with Spicy Butter Sauce
 
shell the shrimp right at the table and then dunk each one into our 
addictive cayenne-spiced sauce. for tamer tastes, serve the shrimp with 
lemon wedges instead. what a great, messy summer meal! 
prep. time: 5 minutes cooking time: 7 minutes 
serves: 4 
 
source: food and wine quick from scratch 
 
1-1/2 quart  water
1/4 cup  distilled vinegar
1/2   lemons, cut into thin slices
2   garlic cloves, smashed
5 Tbsp  old bay seasoning
1/2 tsp  peppercorns
1-1/2 tsp  salt
1-1/4 tsp  cayenne pepper
4   bay leaves, crumbled
2 lb.  large shrimp, in their shells
1/2 lb.  butter
4 tsp  worcestershire sauce
2 tsp  fresh lemon juice
 
in a large pot, combine the water, vinegar, lemon slices, garlic, old bay 
seasoning, peppercorns, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, 1/4 teaspoon of the 
cayenne, and the bay leaves. cover and bring to a boil. reduce the heat 
and simmer for 5 minutes. add the shrimp to the pot. cover and bring back 
to a boil. continue boiling, partially covered, for 1 to 2 minutes, or 
until the shrimp are just done and they turn pink. drain. in a small 
stainless-steel saucepan, melt the butter. remove the pan from the heat 
and add the worcestershire sauce, the lemon juice, and the remaining 1 
teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of cayenne. divide the sauce among 4 small 
bowls. serve the shrimp with the butter dipping sauce. let everyone peel 
their own shrimp. tips wine recommendation: pop open a cold beer for this 
one, or be adventurous and try pairing the spiciness of the shrimp boil 
with a palate-cleansing, refreshing sparkling wine from california or 
australia.
