The key to success with this recipe is not overcooking the shrimp. As the shrimp marinate, the vinegar and lemon continue to firm the texture or "cook" the shrimp. Leftovers can be refrigerated in the marinade up to 2 days and will become even tastier with time. Serve with crusty bread to soak up the flavorful juices, if desired.
