Gator's Basil Marinated Shrimp




  1. Peel shrimp.
  2. Bring 2 gallons water to a boil with 2 cut lemons, 2 ounces crab boil and 2 ounces coarse sea salt.
  3. Let water boil for a few minutes to incorporate flavors....add one shrimp to the water and cook.
  4. Taste - adjust seasonings. If you like it spicy, add more crab boil, and if it is too spicy, throw away 1/2 of the water and start over.
  5. Drop all the shrimp and cook while stirring slowly to mix the shrimp up and help them cook evenly.
  6. Drain into a colander, spread onto a sheet pan and let cool.
