Pickled Shrimp

After posting this picture on Instagram over the weekend I figured I would share this ridiculously delicious low country recipe for pickled shrimp.  It was originally adapted from Charleston Receipts but I have tweaked a few things.  Definitely make 1 day ahead of when you will be serving.  Everything needs to marinate for at least 24 hours.

(grainy IPhone pic-bah!!!)


2lbs shrimp (boil with old bay and salt/peel)
2 cans artichoke 
1 can black pitted olives (optional)
1-2 sliced white onions
bay leaves
1 sliced lemon

*put layers of the above in a container and let sit 24 hours

marinade to pour over each layer
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup tarragon vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 crushed cloves of garlic
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp sugar
2-3 shakes cayenne pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp pickling spices

Perfect hors d'oeuvres  for a cocktail party or anytime!
