Think of this as the West Coast version of a shrimp boil, with plenty of fresh herbs. Don't overcook the shrimp; they'll finish cooking as you toss everything together. Serve with a refreshing arugula salad.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 5 qts. water, potatoes, bay leaves, and salt to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until potatoes are almost tender when pierced, about 12 minutes.

Step 2

Add vinegar and cook 2 minutes (this "sets" the potatoes and keeps them from being a starchy mess). Add shrimp and cook just until curled and pink, about 1 minute. Drain potatoes and shrimp, then return mixture to pot off the heat. Discard bay leaves.

Step 3

Add butter, dill, chives, and pepper, and toss until butter melts. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with lemon wedges.
