Poached Shrimp With Bay Leaves and Lemon

A cold shrimp-cocktail recipe from Cooking Light. It's tasty enough that it doesn't need a sauce. But you can serve with cocktail sauce to stay low-fat, or a remoulade or other mayo-based sauce if you don't mind the extra calories. Time to cook doesn't include chilling time.
