I had a bunch of shrimp leftover from a cocktail platter during the holidays. I was thinking of this shrimp salad my mom used to make when I was younger with rice and vinegar. Since I could only vaguely remember the taste, I threw this together with what I had on hand, and it made a great dinner, with a salad. Red wine vinegar and scallions or parsley would also be good in here in place of or along with the other ingredients. My mom said she used mayo and vinegar, but melted butter seemed better to me.
