Old Bay seasoning, onion, and garlic add tons of flavor to this simple and easy Steamed Shrimp recipe!
Add the onion, garlic, Old Bay Seasoning, and a bay leaf to a large pot. Add 4 cups of water or stock and bring to a boil over high heat.
Once the water has come to full, roaring boil, remove it from the heat. Carefully add the shrimp and cover the pot with a lid. Set an 8-minute timer and allow the shrimp to steep in the pot. The shrimp is done once it is pink and opaque.
Pour the contents of the pot over a colander, pick out the shrimp and set aside. Sprinkle the remaining Old Bay Seasoning evenly over the shrimp and serve alongside lemon wedges and cocktail sauce.
