How to cook Black Sea Boiled Shrimps

I did not see the traditional recipe for cooking shrimp on the site, so I hasten to replenish the site’s piggy bank with this simple recipe. On it, you can cook frozen raw shrimp, bought in the market or fresh if you are a happy resident of the seaside city.

If the shrimps from the market are red-pink in color, they are already pre-cooked and your task is to defrost them and boil them in salt water for about 30 seconds. For raw shrimp, cooking time is increased to 3-4 minutes after boiling.

An important condition in the recipe - is the observance of the amount of salt, water and cooking time. If shrimp digest, they will be tough.

So, pour 1.5 liters of water into the pan. Add 6 tablespoons of salt. Optionally, you can also add bay leaf, ginger root, but still, I advise you to use the recipe of the Black Sea Shrimps, which has been proven by time and generations.

Bring the water with salt to a boil and add fresh shrimp, washed under the tap.

Let the water boil again (you will see the shrimp change light from gray to red-orange) and cook the shrimp for about 3-4 minutes. 

The shrimps are ready when they have completely surfaced to the top of the pan.

Put the finished shrimp in a colander to drain excess liquid. Sprinkle them with any herbs. I have a fragrant hops- Khmeli here.

After that add freshly squeezed lemon juice. Lemon here acts as a taste contrast.

When the Black Sea boiled shrimps are slightly cooled, they can be served.
