Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This quick and easy pasta salad recipe is sure to be a hit at your next party. Steaming the shrimp in beer makes them pretty tasty. The Old Bay adds tons of flavor too. The celery and onions add a bit of crunch to the salad. Very tasty!

Ingredients

1 lb
shrimp, raw shrimp
1 can(s)
fake beer or real beer, any kind for steaming shrimp.
1/2 c
Old Bay seasoning

FOR THE SALAD

1 pkg
elbow macaroni, cooked according to package.
2 stick
stalks of celery, chopped
1/2
small onion, cut and diced
3 to 4 Tbsp
Old Bay, again more or less according to taste
1 to 1 1/2 c
mayonnaise, more or less depending on how creamy you want it

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Steam Shrimp. If you have a rice steamer, great. If you have an insert for a pan, that will work. Put the beer in a pot in place of water. Add the steamer basket and fill with shrimp.
2
Pour in 1/2 cup of Old Bay seasoning. Cut up some onions and add. Cover with a lid. Place pot on stove top. Cook shrimp until pink (should be about 8 to 10 minutes on medium). When done, peel shrimp cut into two's.
3
Now for the salad. Add shrimp to cooled cooked pasta and remaining ingredients. Cool in the fridge.
