Tomorrow I have to stream five pounds of shrimp in my 12 Dutch oven. Never done this before so any tips will be surely appreciated.

Dont have a "steamer" basket (how can I make one?). Im thinking I need to use a trivet, which has lots of space between the wires, which Ill cover, with some onions to keep the little buggers from falling into the boil. Then lots of Old Bay seasoning.

I know this is a very basic thing, but Im a newbie to all forms of cookin'...

Thanks and Happy New year!

Hi Bob,

I just saw your post.
How did you make out?
I usually steam using my colander.
Let us know what you used.

Ended up using a trivet covered with course cut onions to keep the shrimp out of the liquid. It worked ok, but a pain dipping out the shrimp. Plus I could only get a tad over two pounds in the 12 regular Lodge. Id like to do some more steaming, but a deep oven would sure be nice.

I bet there are several cleaver folks in the group that have found really unique ways of steaming in their Dutch ovens and Id sure love to know how Thumbs Up

I don't have an answer to how to steam shrimp, but I'll bet that they tasted great! When I was young my father would bring shrimp back from Mexico when he went down there with friends. We would wrap them in foil with a stick of butter, then put them in the oven. Happy memories.

I think we used ketchup with horse radish. Never tried it with tabasco. I'll have to mix some up to see how I like it. Thumbs Up

Hunt's ketchup (less sweet than Heinz), ground horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice....MAYBE a few drops of Tabasco, but I like my 'bite' to come from the horseradish in shrimp-dippin' sauce. It's ketchup-based, but the rest is all adjustable to taste and personal preference.
