Community Recipe from


  • 2 pound(s) Royal Red Shrimp Frozen
  • 1 package(s) Shrimp Crab Boil or a bottle
  • 1 squeezed lemon chunk for boiling shrimp
  • 1 bottle(s) ketchup
  • 1 bottle(s) chili sauce or chili powder
  • 2 dash(es) Lee & Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 lemon juice to taste squeezed
  • 1 dash(es) black pepper or to taste
  • 1 plain grated horseradish to taste not creamed
  • 1 Tabasco sauce to taste


  1. Most suggest to cook these shrimp from frozen, but can be easily quick thawed in in cold water, or can be thawed overnight in refrigerator.Don't over cook them. Place a packet of shrimp/crab boil seasoning, a chunk of squeezed lemon and some salt (if cooking royal reds-don't salt the cooking water) in a big pot. Bring to a boil. Dump in the shrimp. As soon as the water returns to a boil, pour out the water and shrimp into a colander to stop the cooking.

  2. If you are cooking shrimp of mixed sizes, use a slotted spoon to remove the smaller ones as soon as they begin to curl. Work quickly.

  3. Serve with Cocktail Sauce
