Pickled Shrimp

This dish was an absolute hit at Easter dinner.  It was so easy to put together ahead of time & would be an tasty addition to any special occasion.

1 lb. medium shrimp (peeled & cleaned, tails on)
2 quarts water (for boiling the shrimp)
2 Tbls. Old Bay seasoning

2 cups extra virgin olive oil
2 lemons
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 yellow onion (thinly sliced)
2 cloves garlic (minced or pressed)
1/4 tsp. red pepper flake
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1/2 tsp. celery seed
1/2 tsp. whole corriander
1/4 tsp. whole cloves
1/2 cup fresh flat leaf parsley (chopped or torn)

1) Boil water in a large pot with Old Bay seasoning.  Simmer for approx. 10 minutes.  Add shrimp & cook until just pink - about 30 seconds. Drain.

2) Combine remaining ingredients in a large resealable container.  Add shrimp.  Close lid tightly & shake to coat shrimp well.

3) Allow shrimp to marinate for at least 5 hours & up to 2 days before serving.  Serve cold.

I paired this shrimp with a delicious clean eating coconut cocktail.
