Pickled Shrimp posted by EVOLDOG

Serves 12 to 15 as an hors d'oeuvre.

This popular cocktail party dish never fails to please a crowd, and there is never any left over.  The fact that
it should be made at least a day in advance is a big bonus when planning a party, and the proportions can be
increased to serve any number of guests.  Remember to go easy on the salt when increasing the recipe.

Alternate layers of shrimp and onions in a shallow glass dish.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour over
shrimp.  Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours or longer.  Drain off marinade and serve icy cold in a bowl (in a
large shell looks great) with a small container of toothpicks to spear the shrimp.
