Shrimp Salad

Not to toot my own horn but I make a KILLER Shrimp Salad.  That is what we had for dinner last night.  It was Cheat Night and instead of going out I made shrimp salad at home.  YUM!  I ate until I was stuffed!  Luckily that was the exact time we ran out of shrimp salad.  LOL

Directions:

Steam Shrimp…

1 cup of apple cider vinegar

1 cup of water

3 tablespoons of old bay

2 pounds of shrimp

I add the first three ingredients bring to a boil.  Then I add the shrimp.  I steam for about 8 minutes then stir then steam another 5 – 8 minutes.  Some people say you only need 5 minutes, but that makes them rubbery and raw tasting in the middle.  Remove them from the liquid and let them cool. 

Dressing:

3 tablespoons of the boiling liquid

5 tablespoons of Mayonnaise

1 cup of chopped celery

1/2 – 1 tablespoon of Old Bay

After the shrimp cool peel and discard shells.  Mix dressing and pour over shrimp.  Mix well and enjoy!  I love Shrimp Salad so much!  YUMMY!
