Bring water, crab boil, lemon and celery to a boil. Simmer for five minutes and add shrimp. Return mixture to a boil and simmer shrimp until opaque, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Immediately remove pan from the stove and leave shrimp in water for 5 minutes to absorb more flavor. Drain, cool slightly.

Serve with a prepared dipping sauce or mix a spice blend with mayonnaise, lemon juice and horseradish.
