Steamed Shrimp


Cooked these for the first time yesterday, but it certainly won’t be the last! I would start with a good sprinkling of both seasonings, maybe a tablespoon for each pound of shrimp. Got less than a pound, then use less than a tablespoon.


  • Large Shrimp de-headed, but with shells on
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Tony Chacheres Original Creole Seasoning
  • Water


Step 1

No measurements for the ingredients are listed since they vary each time shrimp are steamed. Add two inches of water to a large pot that has either a steaming tray or basket.

Step 2

Bring water to a boil; add one tablespoon of both seasonings stirring to mix.

Step 3

Place shrimp on the steaming tray or in the basket. Sprinkle the shrimp with both the Old Bay and the Tony Chachere's. The amount depends on how spices you want the steamed shrimp to be. Place the tray or basket over the boiling water, cover and steam the shrimp for about 4 minutes.
