Directions

  1. Pour vinegar into a pot over high heat. Stir in lemon slices, jalapeno peppers, garlic, onion flakes, and sugar. Bring to a rapid boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and cool to lukewarm.
  2. Place the shrimp and cilantro into a resealable plastic bag. Pour the lukewarm sauce into the bag, seal tightly; refrigerate overnight, turning the bag over several times.
  3. Drain liquid from resealable bag, and place shrimp in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss well.

Left out the cilantro (not a fan of it), otherwise followed exactly as printed...and WOW!!! Took this amazing recipe to a Church potluck, and wished I'd had the foresight to print off about 20 copies. It was well received. Thank you Kiki, great job.

Awesome recipe! I've taken this to several parties & always leave with an empty bowl and many requests for the recipe. I usually do use serrano peppers though, just for a little more heat. And I also add freshly sliced red onion to the marinade. Looks good served in a large glass bowl.
