This Homemade Honey Mustard dipping sauce is where it’s at, y’all! I usually end up making a double batch because we go through it so quickly. The best part is you can make the dip a couple of days ahead of time and leave it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.

Lemony Boiled Shrimp

First, as you might have guessed, you’re gonna need some lemons. For a single batch (1 lb. of shrimp), you’ll need two lemons. I did a double batch because we plan on eating these delicious Shrimpy Delights for a few more meals. So, that’s why you see here 4 little lemons. Cut each of these guys in half.

The other piece to our Lemony Boiled Shrimp puzzle is some Creole seasoning. We love Tony’s, but you go with whatchya got!

Next, squeeze the lemons into the water and toss them in. Add the Tony’s and give it a little stir. Cover and bring it all to a boil.

I like to use previously peeled, deveined shrimp with the tails off. I find it in the frozen section and just thaw the shrimp the night before in the fridge. You’re definitely welcome to do tail-on shrimp, too! Totally your choice. Boil the shrimp for about 3 minutes (depending on the size of your shrimp), just until they’re pink and cooked through.

Finally, drain the shrimp into a large colander and let them cool for just a bit.

Ingredients
  

Lemony Boiled Shrimp

To Make the Shrimp

  • In a large stockpot, bring about 6 cups of water to a boil. Add the seasoning, squeeze in the juice from the lemons, and throw the lemons into the pot. Return the water to a boil. Add the shrimp and simmer until pink and cooked through (about 3 minutes depending on the size of your shrimp).
