You will be amazed at how easy it is to make Shrimp Cocktail Appetizer! This recipe gives you perfectly tender, plump shrimp.

EZ-peel shrimp have a slice through the shell down the center, so they are really easy to peel!


Just hold the shrimp in one hand, and with your other hand, slip your finger underneath the shell, and peel it back.


Add 3 quarts of water to a large pot over high heat. Bring the water to a rapid boil, then add the aromatics.


Turn off the stove and remove the pot from the heat. Add the shrimp to the water, then place the lid back onto the pan.


Fill a large bowl with ice, then water. As soon as the shrimp is done cooking, transfer them to the ice water for one minute.
