    Don't use any seasoning. Shrimp is naturally high in cholesterol but shouldn't cause a problem. If they are effected after eating with no seasoning they may have an allergy to shrimp.

    I live in the vicinity of Mayport, FL, and in this part of the country there's a common recipe for boiled shrimp:

    1. Use fresh shrimp. Prepare them by pulling off the heads and cooking them with the shrimp.

    2. Put 2 or 3 times the volume of shrimp to determine the amount of water for the pot.

    3. Buy Zatarines crab and shrimp boil (liquid if you can find it) and add to the water per package directions.

    4. With the water at a full boil, drop in the shrimp and heads and stir. When they float to the top and are pink, take off the stove and let steep for 20 minutes. Retrieve them with a slotted spoon or mesh strainer, leaving the heads behind.

    5. Serve with ketchup seasoned with horseradish and lemon juice to your preferred spice level.

    NOTE: Steeping the shrimp makes them very easy to peel.

    You can make your own Old Bay-just leave out the sodium.

    Whenever making a "low sodium" recipe for anything - start by using low sodium ingredients.

    Next, whatever amount of salt the recipe calls for - use less salt than the recipe recommends.

    Also, try using less bay leaves.  That is a very strong and overpowering flavor.  It may not just be the amount of salt.  It is the strength of all ingredients involved.
