Gray: I enjoyed this and it turned out well, but I usually boil shrimp with old bay seasoning, and it has a lot of the same flavors, and is a lot less work to put together.  This was good and I’m glad we tried it, if only to reinforce what we already liked.  I do think we’ll try putting a couple of bottles of beer in with the water next time we boil shrimp to see how it does.

Katie: This shrimp was great! I loved the flavor, but it was a lot more time consuming to make than boiled shrimp, and I didn’t think that it was really worth the extra effort. We also made cocktail sauce and I preferred dipping the shrimp in the cocktail sauce over the clarified butter. So we probably wouldn’t make this particular recipe again, although the results were good!
