Arrange the shrimp in a steamer basket and set aside.
Add the water, vinegar and lemons to a large stock pot (that the steamer basket will fit on top of with a lid.)
Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
Place the steamer bake in the pot being sure the water isn’t touching the bottom of the basket and cover.
Sprinkle the seasoning over the shrimp and toss to coat.
Reduce the heat to medium and steam the shrimp for 4-6 minutes, depending on the size of your shrimp.
Remove the lid and toss the shrimp with tongs to ensure they cook evenly. Continue cooking until the shrimp have turned pink and are opaque. Shrimp should form the shape of a “c”. If they curl up into an “o” shape, they are overcooked.
Transfer the shrimp to a platter and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
Serve with cocktail sauce and lemon wedges, if desired.
Steamed Shrimp can be made up to 3 days in advance. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
