  • 2 lbs. medium shrimp
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Sprinkle salt, garlic powder, and ground black pepper all over the shrimp. Toss so that the seasoning will coat the shrimp. Let it stay for 5 minutes.
  • Arrange the shrimp in a steamer. Pour around 2 cups of water in the steamer and turn on the heat. Steam the shrimp for 3 minutes. If you are using large shrimp or prawn, you can steam for up to 5 minutes. Do not overcook the shrimp.
  • Remove the shrimp from the steamer and arrange in a serving plate.
  • Serve with spiced vinegar.
  • Share and enjoy
