    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'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?
