Ingredients
  • Shrimp:
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 pounds large tiger prawns, uncooked, shelled with tails on, deveined
  • 1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)
  • Cocktail Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions

To a large saute pan, with a lid, over medium-high heat, add the water and shrimp and cover until cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the shrimp with tongs to a medium bowl and let cool. Add the seafood seasoning and toss well to coat the shrimp.

Put each ramekin in a slightly larger bowl and divide the shrimp evenly to the inside of the bowls before serving.
