Key West Shrimp Boil

Key West Shrimp Boil - Easy Life Meal & Party PlanningWhile we were at the Star Fish Market we picked up a pound of Key West Pinks. By far these are my favorite shrimp: they have such a sweet savory flavor.
I love to serve them several ways, but staying true to the freshness, my shrimp boil is my favorite.
The end result is a succulent shrimp cocktail that will have you come back to the same recipe time and time again.

Key West Shrimp Boil

1-2 lbs - Key West Pink Shrimp
2 - Lemons, sliced
2 - Limes, sliced
1 - Orange, sliced
4 Tbsp. - Old Bay Seasoning or Blackened Seafood Seasoning
2 cups - Water

Place all ingredients except for shrimp in pot and bring to boil. Let simmer for about 8-10 minutes to let all the flavors blend together.
Bring mixture back to a boil then add the Shrimp. Boil for about 5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and have a curl to them. They should not be translucent. Do not over cook though, that can make for some chewy shrimp.
Drain shrimp in colander and then place ice over them to cool immediately.
