From the store:
1/2 pound of medium shrimp - on sale for $4.99/lb.
small can of pineapple chunks, on sale for $.94
generous helping of Old Bay seasoning
butter for melting and dipping shrimp
What you do:
- A common mistake is to add the Old Bay and shrimp to the pot of water at the same time, then boil. Here's a hint: add your Old Bay seasoning and boil water for 10 minutes - then add the shrimp and cook until pink.
- Melt the butter in a microwave-safe glass dish for 10 seconds at a time so it doesn't get too hot and splatter - cleaning out a greasy microwave is not fun...trust me.
- Drain the pineapple
