Watkins Recipes


for August 2005

Spiced Shrimp
Basic Spaghetti Sauce
Watkins Salsa Picante
Bavarian Fruit Tart
Sweet & Sour Refrigerator Pickles

Complete Recipe Index

Spiced Shrimp
  • 3 quarts/liters water
  • 1/2 cup/125 ml vinegar
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 jumbo sweet yellow onion (such as Vidalia), halved
  • 1/4 cup/60 ml Watkins Pickling Spices
  • 1 tbsp/15 ml Watkins Sea Salt
  • 2 pounds/900 g fresh tiger shrimp, with shells on

Bring water, vinegar, lemon, onion, spices and salt to a boil in a large pot. Boil 10 minutes, then add shrimp.* Boil shrimp 3 to 5 minutes or until shells are pink and shrimp is done. Serve hot ("peel and eat" style) or chilled as an appetizer: Serve with cocktail sauce or your favourite Watkins Hot Pepper Sauce.

* To make a full meal, add cut-up potatoes and corn on the cob to boil with the shrimp. You'll need to increase the water and seasonings, and add the potatoes 10 minutes or so earlier than the shrimp.
