Boiled Shrimp

I know it is not cheap, but of course we dearly love shrimp. These are easy to prepare. Just DO NOT drain them in the sink. I assume the Roadtrek will reek for ages afterwards if you get that nasty stuff in the gray water tank. I am not willing to try it.


 1 pound Shrimp
 2 quarts of water
 Cocktail sauce


Bring a couple of quarts of water to a boil in a saucepan. Plop in the shrimp, does not matter if they are frozen or not, and bring the pot back to a boil. As soon as it re-boils, immediately turn off the heat and let the pot sit uncovered for five minutes. Drain and put the shrimp on ice to chill and stop the cooking. Serve the peel and eat shrimp in bowls with cocktail sauce on the side to dunk them in. Paired with a salad, that's a whole meal and really good eating!

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
