Boiled Shrimp and Spicy Garlic Dipping Sauce
Boil Florida Pink Shrimp is the best shrimp you will ever taste. I love Boiled Shrimp and Spicy Garlic Dipping Sauce. It is the best way to eat boil and peel shrimp!
As I was making the Boiled Shrimp and Spicy Garlic Dipping Sauce my mouth was literally watering. I couldn’t wait to dip a sweet and juicy Florida Gulf shrimp in the spicy garlic dipping sauce.
If you have never tasted a plump Florida Gulf Pink Shrimp you are in for a treat. I’m lucky enough to live off the west coast of Florida where I can buy freshly caught Florida Gulf Pink Shrimp any time I want. Most of the large grocery chains sell frozen Florida Gulf Pink Shrimp so no matter where you live you can enjoy some too. Read the labels.
The next time you plan on boiling up some shrimp, stone crab claws, lobster or blue crab be sure to make this Spicy Garlic Dipping Sauce to go along with it. It only takes a couple of minutes to make it and the flavor goes perfect with shellfish. Even with the time it takes to boil the shrimp this tasty meal or appetizer is ready in about 15 minutes.
When I eat shrimp or crab legs I like to cook it with just a bit of seasoning. I don’t want to overpower it with a heavy seasoning. I like to enjoy the sweet flavor of the shellfish. But when it comes to my dipping sauce I love a flavor that will complement the shellfish with a bit of garlic and a bit of zing from hot sauce.
