How to Make Shrimp Cocktail

Skip the caterer and forgo the pickup order–a delicious shrimp cocktail can be made right at home. Start with 1lb of fresh, deveined shrimp and a pot of boiling water.

How to Tell if Shrimp is Deveined

Check the outer edge of the shrimp for the black line. If the line is still present, the shrimp hasn’t been deveined. It’s not necessary to devein shrimp before eating, but most folks prefer to for aesthetic reasons. You can by deveined shrimp or cut the “string” black line out carefully at home.

How to Cook Shrimp for Shrimp Cocktail

Shrimp cocktail will turn a pale pink when it’s ready, which usually takes about three minutes in boiling water. Slightly seasoning the water with parsley, onions, and lemons will add a delicate, fresh taste to the shrimp.

While this dish is best served immediately, you can enjoy shrimp cocktail that’s been properly stored in the refrigerator for about three days.
