The recipe for Old Bay Steamed Shrimp is super easy and takes minutes to make. There are also a lot of varieties of Old Bay Seasoning – I used the lemon herb variety for this recipe – but you can use any of them. Be sure to also use RAW shrimp – peeled and deveined. This shrimp cooks in just 2-3 minutes so be sure to get the raw so it doesn’t get rubbery.
