I need a good recipe for shrimp salad. My local grocery has shrimp on sale for 3.98 a lb. usuall 9.98. so I thought I would steam my shrimp and make shrimp salad out of a lb. of them.

    Boil shrimp til just tender (a few minutes) in water spiked with old bay seasoning, bay leaf, whole black peppercorns, salt. Drain and cool under cold water until very cold--can add ice. Peel and chop into large chunks. Toss with very light coating of mayo, salt and white pepper, a bit of old bay seasoning, chopped celery if desired, a tsp or so of lemon juice. Serve on bed of lettuce or on a sammich. Hope you meant raw shrimp; I much prefer cooking my own. One never knows the history of store-cooked shrimp. beth

      They are the raw shrimp. I don't care for the ready cooked shrimp either
