Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings
We like Quick Pickled Shrimp because the recipe calls for pre-cooked shrimp that marinade in a zippy sauce for just 2 hours. 

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pound peeled, medium-size cooked shrimp
  • Table salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Stir together lemon slices, onion, olive oil, vinegar, dill, parsley, Creole seasoning, and garlic in a large bowl; transfer to a zip-top plastic freezer bag. Add shrimp, turning to coat. Seal and chill 2 to 6 hours. Remove shrimp, discarding marinade. Sprinkle shrimp with table salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
