How to Make Pickled Shrimp


  • 1Mix all ingredients in a bowl (or I use a big Rubbermaid container with lid so I can shake occasionally while marinating) You can also use a Ziploc bag . Put in the fridge for several hours or overnight. When serving put on a nice serving plater or in crystal bowl with lemon rounds to garnish.
