I an lucky and have a shrimp connection....I get my shrimp right off the boat! I am always looking for an even better way to serve shrimp. This is a refreshing recipe for a shrimp appetizer or a summer salad. Marinate for the full 48 hours for the best taste. Great to use at a party, because the shrimp are already peeled....no need to clean up all those shells!
