The Basic Fundamentals

Bring 1 quart water to a boil over Medium-High heat. Add the shrimp & cook 1 to 2 minutes or just until pink. Drain. Immediately rinse under cool water. Submerge in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Drain. Place the shrimp over fresh ice in a bowl & chill 1 hour.

Combine the Bloody Mary Salsa & the horseradish in a small bowl. Serve with the shrimp.
