 The Shrimp

When purchasing shrimp, the count is a range of how many to expect per pound. They will need to be peeled & deveined. Cut a small slit down the back of the shrimp, remove the shell leaving the tails intact & rinse under cool water.

The Lemon-Dill Pickled Shrimp

Layer the shrimp mixture with the lemon slices on a platter or in a serving bowl. Sprinkle with additional salt & pepper. The recipe can easily be doubled as it’s sure to go quickly. When planning menus & selecting a collection of desserts to accompany with the shrimp for spring gatherings, use the lemon as a cue. Strawberry-Lemon Pavlova with Classic Lemon Curd, Strawberry Shortcake & Lemon Shortbread would all make lovely options.
