The Knockout Shrimp Appetizer You Haven't Considered
If you can boil water, you can make these briny bites — and we highly suggest that you do. Served over salad, polenta or pasta, or on their own as a starter, they’re as addictive as they are easy.
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 dried bay leaf
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 pound small shrimp, peeled and deveined (leave tails intact, if desired)
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/4 teaspoon whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon juniper berries
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
1. In a medium pot, bring 2 quarts water, Old Bay, bay leaf, and 1 tablespoon salt to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes. Add shrimp and cook until just pink and opaque, 30 seconds; drain.
2. Stir together shrimp and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Transfer mixture to a container. Cover tightly; shake to distribute. Chill at least 5 hours and up to 2 days before serving.
