12 large Shrimp plus enough shrimp to measure 1 cup, chopped

3 - 4 T. Mayonnaise

2 T. Capers (include caper juice)

  • While eggs are cooking, place beer in a saucepan with Old Bay and 2 cups water and bring to a boil.  Put the whole shrimp and the shrimp to chop in the boiling water; bring to a second boil and turn off heat.  Leave shrimp in hot water for 5 minutes or until pink in color, drain and peel.  Set aside 12 and chop the rest.
  • Slice hard boiled, peeled eggs in half lengthwise.  Scoop yolks out and place in a mixing bowl, mashing the yolks.
  • Add remaining ingredients and the chopped shrimp and mix together thoroughly.
  • Spoon mixture by spoonfuls into the white half of each egg.  Place one shrimp on top of each egg and sprinkle with paprika.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.  Makes 12 amazing appetizer portions


*To hard boil eggs:  Place eggs in a saucepan large enough to hold them in a single layer.  Add cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch; cover pan; heat over high heat just to boiling.  Remove from burner.  Let eggs stand in hot water about 12 minutes.  Drain; cool down in ice water; and peel off shells.
