Marinated Shrimp


I have been making this version of marinated shrimp for many years.  It is the perfect recipe for a picnic, appetizer or condiment for a Bloody Mary.  You marinate the cooked shrimp for 24 – 48 hours prior to serving.  The assembly is very easy, mix everything together, add the shrimp and refrigerate.  The result is  perfectly marinated shrimp with the infusion of the spices and herbs.  I like to serve these shrimp with crackers.  However, if you have seen the current Bloody Mary cocktail explosion with the number of condiments added to these drinks – these marinated shrimp will take your cocktail over the top.  The perfect Bloody Mary –  celery spear, cherry tomatoes threaded on a skewer with cooked bacon and marinated shrimp.  What a winning combination.  Cheers
