FAQ

Should shrimp be brined?

Brining shrimp isn’t necessary, but it can keep your shrimp juicy. If you do choose to brine your shrimp, remember that it doesn’t take long. We recommend letting your shrimp sit in the brine for just 15 minutes.

Do you rinse shrimp after brining?

Yes, it would be best if you rinsed your shrimp after removing them from the brine. We recommend rinsing your brined shrimp thoroughly under cold water. Make sure you dry your shrimp off on paper towels before cooking.

How do you serve shrimp cocktail?

We recommend serving our shrimp cocktail recipe in cocktail glasses. If you plan to serve your recipe at a party, you can serve the shrimp on a platter over ice and keep the sauce separate.

What should you serve with shrimp cocktail?

Try serving your shrimp cocktail with a pasta dish as the main course. Consider this Mediterranean avocado pasta salad recipe, this creamy avocado pasta, or this avocado pesto pasta salad.

What appetizers go with shrimp cocktail?

Try serving your shrimp cocktail with a guacamole dip as an appetizer. We recommend a classic Mexican guacamole recipe, but you can always switch it up and try something a little different too. You may like this spicy citrus guacamole recipe.
