Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Add salt, sugar, and dill sprigs; stir until sugar has dissolved. Pour in shrimp and cook until the shells turn pink, and the meat is no longer translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Strain the shrimp through a colander, discard dill sprigs, and chill until cold in the refrigerator, about 30 minutes.
  2. Once shrimp have cooled, peel and devein them; discard the shells. Whisk together oil, vinegar, minced dill, salt, and pepper; toss with shrimp meat to coat. Cover, and chill overnight in the refrigerator; serve with sprigs of fresh dill.

Served this as an appetizer last night for a dinner party and everyone raved about it! Fabulous, and very easy. I love any dish I can make ahead and just take out of the fridge to serve. I used uncooked but peeled, deveined shrimp with tails on which made it even easier as I didn't have to peel the shrimp. I cut the salt in half and will probably use even less next time I make this. Also squeezed a bit of fresh lemon over the shrimp before serving. Thanks for this recipe - I'll definitely make it often!

This is a great way to serve shrimp. Cooked exactly as stated but used dried dill instead of a fresh sprig. I also don't think the sugar is necessary. Yum!

Very nice but felt it needed more marinade especially dill.
