Servings: four to six.
Shrimp are much more flavorful when poached with their shells on. Don’t rinse the cooked shrimp or you’ll lose the delicious flavor of the poaching liquid.

This is my favorite shrimp cocktail! I usually make a double batch by being generous with the water and white wine. Then cooking the shrimp in 2 batches. For me, the times are a bit long, usually knock a minute off. I use the red onion and jalapeno cocktail sauce and the shrimp are great!
Great appetizer. The cocktail sauce is terrific. I used frozen shrimp, and cooked according to recipe directions. The shrimp came out perfectly. Your guests will love this.
Wow was this good. I saw the magazine at a Dr's office and wrote this one down. The shrimp were PERFECTly cooked, not mushy, not rubbery, just wonderful. The flavor was great to.
