“Many say this is a retro appetizer that is "hip" again. I don't remember it ever going out of style. Large shrimp, in my opinion, are better, but any size you can find will do.”

Directions

  1. Put the shrimp in a large pot over high heat with water to cover. Salt the water, and when it boils, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the shrimp are pink all over, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Combine all the other ingredients, except lettuce and lemon slices; taste and adjust the seasonings. If time allows, chill both the shrimp and sauce; peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails intact.
  3. Serve individual servings of shrimp, on a bed of lettuce, if you like, with a small bowl of sauce. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.
