Recipe Courtesy Of Brandon Howard, La Caille
2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
1 lemon, halved
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon pickling spice
1 teaspoon salt
24 extra large tail-on raw shrimp (more if you are using smaller shrimp)
For the Avocado Cocktail Sauce:
1/2 cup Heinz chili sauce
1 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Fresh Horseradish Root (Prepared Acceptable)
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
1/2 clove garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 Avocado diced into small cubes
1.) To prepare the cocktail sauce, mix all the cocktail sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
2.) Have a large bowl of ice water ready and set near the sink. To a 8-quart pot of water, add the Old Bay, lemon, granulated garlic, garlic, chili powder, and salt. Bring to a boil.
3.) Add the shrimp to the pot and when the water returns to a boil, the shrimp should be done! The shrimp should be bright pink.
4.) Immediately drain and place the shrimp into the ice bath to cool for 2 minutes. Peel the shrimp (leaving the tail-on.) Drain and serve with the cocktail sauce.
