Nightshade Free Shrimp Boil

image

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

INGREDIENTS:

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)

METHOD:

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.
