Default Shrimp Cure Recipes?

I want to cure some shrimp, but I don't want to buy the premade cures. I want a basic recipe to work with that I can customize a bit to my liking. Does anyone have a basic set of ingredients and instructions or know where I could find them?

If you're curing shrimp for steelhead bait I just cut little pieces of the cocktail shrimp and put them in rock salt.

If you're curing whole prawns for something, I don't know. I've never cured any whole shrimp or prawns.

Here is a very, very basic cure.

Prawns, sandshrimp or coon shrimp.

Must be put in correcft order for best color
1/2 gallon water
dye as needed (I use bad azz bait dye)
shrimp let soak for 10 minutes.
1 cup sugar
2 cups sea salt (purchase at albertsons or other grocery store)
Now add anything you want for scent.

Let soak over night before fishing.

Very basic but deadly!

What works best for me and catches lots of fish is just plain sea salt. Layer in a tupperware containerwith layers of shrimp, then generous portions of sea salt and more layers of shrimp and sea salt.

I noticed that Sportsman's had shrimp in a brine. Does anyone use a brine method to cure shrimp?

Rob has some secret cured purple coon shrimp for the Columbia trib steelhead fishery, just bought myself a supply as they caught a lot of fish last summer.
One of the best pre cured baits i've purchased for any type of fishing to say the least.

So are you saying the Nate's Prawn cure will outfish the sea salt and dye cure? I always thought steelhead like it mild...PM me with your testimony, I may bite...
