Grandma's Shrimp

Great make ahead appetizer for shrimp lovers!"


2-3 pounds of large shrimp (uncooked) We use the easy peel shrimp - no deveining needed
1 large lemon - sliced
2 cups vegetable oil
1/4 cup Texas Pete hot sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley (or dried if you can't find fresh)


Peel shrimp & devein if necessary; bring enough sliced lemon & enough water to cover shrimp to a boil. Add shrimp and cook for 3 - 5 minutes. Drain and rinse shrimp with very cold water to stop them from cooking. Put shrimp in a bowl (I use a Tupperware type bowl with a lid and gently shake it with the lid on to stir). Combine all other ingredients in a separate bowl; beat with a whisk; pour over shrimp & toss well. Cover and chill shrimp for at least 8 hours. Stir shrimp a couple of time while it's chilling. One hour before serving, drain the shrimp WELL in a colander and serve in a bowl. Enjoy!
