Nightshade Free Shrimp Boil


On an Autoimmune Paleo diet you can’t have nightshade or seed based spices. Traditional Shrimp boil is filled with these. As any other Floridian would do, I made up my own shrimp boil to cook shrimpI feel like the most important step is getting your water salty enough. Other seasoning adds a pleasant flavor to the shrimp without the choking amounts of peppers in most boil mixes.

For up to 3 pounds of shrimp


1 1/2 TB kosher salt

2 bay leaves

1 TB dried thyme

1 tsp dried marjoram or oregano

1 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp whole black peppercorns, (optional)


Add all ingredients to pot of water and bring to a boil. Add shrimp, give them a stir and turn off heat. Shrimp will be done in a couple minutes. When they look done and are starting to float, try one and see. Drain in a colander.
