Summertime here in Maryland is all about the seafood. I grew up picking crabs and eating corn on the cob in the back yard. While I’m not a huge fan of crabs anymore (I know, it’s kind of like a crime in Maryland), I do love shrimp!
In Maryland, Old Bay is a pantry staple for things like chicken, fries, shrimp, and of course, crabs! I use it to add a little kick when I make chicken or shrimp salad.
Summer is perfect for sitting on the deck, enjoying a sandwich, and a cold iced tea. Our Maryland-Style Shrimp Salad is a super yummy, yet incredibly easy, way to fancy up your sandwich!
And a sandwich like this deserves a delicious drink! I love Straight Up™ Tea because it’s made with all-natural ingredients and no artificial anything! I can really count on it to deliver true tea taste. My favorite is Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea Sort Sweet Rooibos and Tom really likes Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea Unsweetened. With three levels of sweetness, plus black, green and rooibos tea varieties, there’s a Straight Up™ Tea for you.
While at Martin’s Food Market, we always head to the seafood department. The boys love checking out the lobsters in the tank and I get shrimp for lunch. What I love about Martin’s is that they’ll steam and season your shrimp for free! You can’t beat that! So, for our shrimp salad I did cheat a little and had them steam and lightly season it for me.
- 1 lb shrimp, steamed and peeled (I have the Seafood Department steam and season for me)
- ⅓ cup finely chopped celery
- ¼ cup finely chopped onion
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- Stir together celery, onion, mayo, lemon juice, and Old Bay.
- Cut shrimp in half if large. You can chop if you like smaller pieces, but I like chunks.
- Stir in shrimp.
- Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
