Added: Thursday, October 2, 2008


2 1/2 lb. fresh or frozen shrimp
1/2 c. celery tops
1/4 c. mixed pickling spice
1 T. salt
2 c. onion, sliced in rings
8 bay leaves
1 1/2 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. white vinegar
3 T. capers
2 1/2 tsp. celery seed
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 drops Tabasco sauce

Place fresh or frozen shrimp into cold water with celery tops, pickling spice, and salt. Bring to boil for 3-5 minutes, until shrimp is pink. Boiling too long will make shrimp tough. Remove from boiling water and place in bowl of ice water. Peel and devein the shrimp.

In large ziploc bag, layer the shrimp and onion slices. Mix oil, vinegar, capers, celery seed, salt, bay leaves and Tabasco. Pour into the bag with shrimp and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Turn the bag every two hours, when possible.

Drain the marinade and remove bay leaves before serving. Serve with or without onion rings.
