Pickled Shrimp

  • TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN plus 2 hours chilling
  • SERVINGS: 4 First-Course Servings

Jalapeño and garlic make this an addictive sweet-and-spicy appetizer.

  1. 1 pound shelled and deveined large shrimp
  2. 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  3. 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced crosswise
  4. 1 cup red wine vinegar
  5. 1/2 cup water
  6. 2 tablespoons sugar
  7. 3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  8. 1 bay leaf
  9. 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
  10. 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  11. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, simmer the shrimp until just white throughout, about 2 minutes. Drain and transfer to an 8-by-11-inch glass or ceramic dish. Scatter the onion and jalapeño over the shrimp.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, water, sugar, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns and mustard seeds and bring to a simmer; stir until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the pickling liquid over the shrimp and let cool. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 6 hours.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp with the onion and jalapeño to a medium bowl. Add the olive oil and season with salt, then toss and serve.
