Shrimps on a Sunny Sunday

Nothing better than sea food on a sunny Sunday! On Sunday, we invited our friends and relatives over for a special lunch. The menu was mainly sea food: we had shrimps, two types of fish, two types of salads, and different types of appetizers.

I am not a fish lover, yet I adore sea food (weird! yes?!).  So I enjoyed the shrimps and appetizers the most!

Here’s how you can cook your own shrimps at home:


Fresh Shrimps
Laurel Paper
Lemon Slices

Method of Preparation:

–          Boil water in a cooker

–          Add salt, lemon slices , and some laurel paper (these will help remove the smell of shrimps)

–          When the water starts boiling add the fresh shrimps

–          When the shrimps start turning orangey, then they are almost finished

–          When you are waiting for the shrimps to be boiled, you can do the sauce

–          In a small container mix mayonnaise and ketchup together. They will create an orangey color as well, then add a bit of tabasco and a bit of mustard depending on your preference. Taste the sauce as you are mixing it to get your ultimate cocktail sauce.

–          When you finish with the cocktail sauce, cut the lettuce into small pieces that you will use to decorate your shrimp plate.

–          Then use your sense of decoration to decorate your shrimps!

–        Enjoy!


Now tell me how do you cook your shrimps?
