Add a green salad and crusty bread to complete the meal.
Makes 4 servings
Preparation: 10 minutes + 25 minutes steaming time
3/4 pound new red potatoes, scrubbed, halved
(quartered if large)
3/4 pound new white potatoes, scrubbed, halved
(quartered if large)
2 medium (6 ounce) red or sweet white onions,
peeled (leave root end intact), quartered
3 ears corn, cut into 1-1/2 inch lengths
2 or 3 whole bay leaves
1-1/2 pounds extra large (21-25) shrimp, rinsed
3 tablespoons Old Bay
Fill the water reservoir and attach to the steamer.
Arrange the potatoes and onions in the large steamer tray; tuck in
the bay leaves. Steam for 18 minutes. While the potatoes are
steaming, thinly slice one of the lemons*. Toss the shrimp with 2
tablespoons of the Old Bay
seasoning, then mix in half the lemon
slices. Arrange the shrimp and lemon slices in the small steamer
tray. Shrimp should not touch the sides of the basket. Cut the
remaining lemons in wedges.
Turn off steamer; let sit for 1 minute. Carefully remove the convec-
tion fan and lid. Arrange the corn on top of the partially cooked
potatoes. Insert the small steamer tray and reattach the convection
fan. Steam for 5 – 7 minutes – the shrimp should all have turned
pink. Turn off the steamer and let sit for one minute. Arrange the
potatoes, onions and corn on a large warm platter; sprinkle with
the remaining Old Bay
seasoning. Arrange the shrimp around the
outside of the platter. Garnish with the remaining sliced lemons and
lemon wedges. If desired, serve with drawn butter.
*May be done using the Cuisinart
food processor fitted with the
thin (2 mm) slicing disc.
