When cooking the shrimp, put it in boiling water filled half way in a huge pot. Put the sliced lemons in the pot as well to add flavour to the shrimp. Once the pot is boiling, put the shrimp in there, half a quarter of a pound a time for 2-3 mins, or until they turn orange. Repeat until you cook all the shrimp, and but the cooked shrimp in a strainer to remove the excess water.

In another pot, melt 3 sticks of butter and add the garlic. Use a low heat to prevent the garlic from burning. Once all the butter is melted, add all the seasoning until dissolved into the butter.

Once that’s done, mix it with the cooked shrimp. You can also add corn and sausages if you fancy!
