Poached Shrimp With Bay Leaves and Lemon

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by appleydapply

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.

Very tasty! Easy to make, too.
