Servings: 10 appetizer servings
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 5 min
7 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 lbs unpeeled fresh shrimp
3 medium onions, sliced
1 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 bay leaves
2 whole cloves garlic, peeled
fresh ground pepper
Boil water, add shrimp and cook until just pink, no more than 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well and rinse in cold water to prevent further cooking. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails on. In large glass airtight jar (about 1 1/2 quarts *) layer shrimp and onions and top each layer with ground black pepper, peppercorns, bay leaf and a clove of garlic. Keep layering until jar is about 2/3 full. Pour vinegar over layers until jar is almost full. Leave space at the top so you can gently shake jar to remix ingredients. Seal jar tightly and chill for a few days up to two weeks. Turn jar upside down to remix every other day or so. Serve chilled as an appetizer.
* Note: for larger shrimp you may need a larger jar and adjust ingredients accordingly.
