How to Poach Shrimp

Prep Time: 5 Minutes 

Cook Time: 15 Minutes 

Ingredients 

  • 4 Cups filtered water 
  • 5" Piece lemongrass, smashed 
  • 2 Cloves garlic 
  • 1 Tbsp. peppercorns 
  • 1 Lb. Fresh shrimp, peeled & deveined 

Directions

1. Bring 4 cups water to boil. Turn off heat.

2. Use the back of a knife to smash and crack lemongrass, releasing oils.

3. Add lemongrass, garlic, and peppercorns. Steep 10 minutes—like making tea.

4. In a shallow bowl, pour liquid over peeled and deveined shrimp. Stir with spoon
so hot liquid evenly distributes through shrimp. Allow liquid to poach shrimp 7 minutes (time may vary depending on the size of shrimp).

5. After 7 minutes, taste a shrimp. If needed, continue poaching until done.

6. Once shrimp is poached, remove from liquid and cool in fridge up to 3 minutes before using.
