Description Edit

"Pickled" is something of a misnomer, the Shrimp only have a pickled flavor, but they will keep in the fridge for at least a week, and they taste very, very good. Don't worry about all those red pepper flakes; these are spicy, but aren't nearly as hot as they sound.

Ingredients Edit


Directions Edit

  • Bring water, salt, lemon zest and juice (throw in juiced lemons as well), peppercorns, and pepper flakes to a full rolling boil over high heat, and allow to boil for 5 minutes.
  • Do not add Shrimp yet!
  • While water is heating, combine all marinade ingredients in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for at least 15 minutes for flavor to develop.
  • Add the Shrimp to the Shrimp boil, and poach for about 3–4 minutes or until Shrimp are bright pink and just barely firm.
  • Drain Shrimp, and place in a small heatproof bowl.
  • Bring marinade ingredients back to a boil if not still simmering, and pour over Shrimp, tossing well to coat, allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate at least a day, turning and tossing a couple times, before eating.
  • Can be kept refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
  • Serve on lettuce lined plates as an appetizer or with toothpicks as a buffet item or as finger food at a party.
