Cook Shrimp:
Note: This step may be done the night before.

In a 4-quart stock pot, over medium-high heat, add water and all seasoning ingredients. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce to simmer and allow to cook 15 minutes for flavors to develop. Bring mixture back to a rolling boil, add shrimp and stir approximately 3-5 minutes. At this point, shrimp should be pink and curled. Test for doneness, being careful not to over-cook. Once water returns to a boil, shrimp should be perfectly done. Pour off boiling water and replace with cold tap water to stop the cooking process. Drain and place shrimp in a serving bowl. Cover with clear wrap and refrigerate.

Prepare Sauce

Combine all sauce ingredients in a 2-quart mixing bowl and whisk well to incorporate the seasonings. Once blended, cover and place in the refrigerator, preferably overnight. A minimum of 4 hours will be required for flavor to develop. When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator and adjust seasonings to taste.
