Shrimp Boil with Spicy Sauce

Shrimp Boil with Spicy Sauce is an easy shrimp recipe where you boil the shrimp and serve with a buttery spicy sauce for dipping!  Simple and delicious shrimp, this shrimp boil with spicy sauce can be served as an appetizer or as the main course. Peeling and dunking each one is what makes it so much more fun eating shrimp this way!

There’s nothing to it to making this shrimp boil dish.  It makes a huge impression with guests! Just add some seasonings to the boiling water before the shrimp goes in.  As soon as the shrimp turns pink, remove and serve!

It’s that easy!

One popular way to serve shrimp boil is with a spicy sauce for dipping, or with some wedges of lemon.  Also, a cold beer or white wine wouldn’t hurt either.

I decided to pair this shrimp boil with a spicy butter sauce.  Butter, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and Worcestershire sauce are combined and warmed only minutes before serving.

It was so good, it was addicting!

Shrimp can be found all year long.  Large or jumbo shrimps are sold at your local fish market.
