Peyton and Eli Manning's Mom's New Orleans Marinated Shrimp - a Tailgating and Holiday Favorite

New Orleans Marinated Shrimp
When you have two sons who are Super Bowl winning NFL quarterbacks, you’ve probably amassed some great tailgating recipes. Olivia Manning is the quintessential football mom, thanks to Peyton, Eli, and husband Archie. Here’s one of her go-to favorites.
6 pounds raw shrimp in shells
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon celery seed
3/4 cup salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups oil
1/2 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 5-ounce jar hot Creole mustard
1 5-ounce jar horseradish
1 cup thinly sliced yellow onion
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot, place shrimp; cover with water. Add bay leaves, celery seed, salt and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes, until shrimp are pink. Drain and peel. Combine remaining ingredients. Add shrimp. Cover and refrigerate. Serve with toothpicks or on crackers. Make one day ahead of game day!
