Ingredients

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
Kicked Up Cocktail Sauce:

Directions

In the base pot of a steamer, combine the beer, crab boil, and garlic and bring to a simmer. Put the steamer basket in place.

In a bowl, toss the shrimp with the Essence. Place the shrimp in the steamer basket, close the lid and steam until the shrimp are firm and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes, stirring the shrimp once to ensure even cooking.

Remove the basket with the shrimp and let sit until cool enough to handle. Turn out into a large serving bowl or onto a thick layer of newspapers spread on a table. Serve with the cocktail sauce for dipping.

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):

Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.

Recipe from "New New Orleans Cooking", by Emeril Lagasse and Jessie Tirsch. Published by William and Morrow, 1993.

Kicked Up Cocktail Sauce:
