Unfortunately, I only have access to frozen ones. These days due to the grocery shortage, I can't even get raw shrimp. If I do boil them, I only do it for a short period of time to get them just cooked. I hate overcooked seafood.

That's the trick; boil them just long enough for them to turn color. The shells peel off easier too. Another trick to save a little money is to sprinkle the Old Bay onto the shrimp right after you boil them (in the colander after you drain them). I don't boil them in Old Bay anymore because it uses too much seasoning and you can't tell the difference.

When I lived in Corpus Christi I was instructed by a local chef to bring the water (with seasoning) to a boil. Toss in the shrimp, turn off the heat, cover and let sit for about three minutes. Then, put it over ice. It's almost foolproof.

IMO steaming is the best. Steam for a few minutes or 3 min in Insta Pot.

When I used to work my son and I ate them almost every Sunday. I use SWAMP FIRE seasoning and ZATARAIN'S bag seasoning. Sometimes I add a few caps of liquid crab boil with the other seasons. OLD BAY seasoning is for Yankees.

This week we have shrimp at cheaper price than chicken ($4/lb vs $5/lb)! Talking about unusual time indeed.

Here in Louisiana, if you served a CoonAss shrimp, or ANY seafood, sprinkled with seasoning instead of boiling them in seasoning, they would put you in their Pirogue and take you on a one way swamp tour.
