    This shrimp is delicious and makes a good presentation. Instead of following the linked recipe for boiled shrimp, I just boiled raw, peeled shrimp from frozen in salted water. Everyone loved it.

    I liked doing this even boiling the shrimp was easy. I purchased uncooked devained shrimp. Next time I will kick it up with some more hot peppers and hot sauce. Living out west makes you always want it hotter

    So, will you post an addendum to this recipe? I just can not afford to buy shrimp and mess them up.
    Thank you for your time.

    After watching again the video,show, I have a small problem though. I am not sure if I can wait 3 days after mixing all these good ingredients all together. This food is Diabolic:):):)
    Thank you.

    Frank poured the lemon juice and vinegar over the onions to marinade. He used sliced lemons for presentation.

    Frank used sliced lemons and the lemon juice.

    Frank's demonstration on show used sliced lemons. I missed the very beginning of the demo. Are the sliced lemons in addition to the lemon juice noted in the recipe?
