For all of the Alton Brown turkey brine fans out there, this is Mr. Brown's brine for shrimp cocktail. I personally like to add a few extra spices to my brine, which are listed above, but I've posted his original brine as he made it on his show. Ever since I found this recipe, its become ONLY way I ever make peel and eat shrimp cocktail. The shrimp come out so moist, and full of flavor!
