  • 2 lbs. shrimp
  • 1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 c. sweet onion

Combine all ingredients except shrimp in a glass, heat-proof container. Mix well. Peel shrimp and add to pot of boiling water. Boil for 2 minutes (the pickling will "cook" them the rest of the way) Add shrimp to the bowl and toss. Let them sit until at room temperature and then refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled.
