1 lb. large shrimp, cooked, peeled and deveined. you can use them either with or without the tails.

1 small red onion, thinly sliced or chopped.

2 & 1/2 t. capers

1/3 cup canola oil

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1 TB lemon

Other ingredients in the recipe that are not necessary and are a personal preference.

1 tablespoon white wine dash Worcestershire sauce

2 garlic cloves, pressed

1/4 cup or what ever you have of chopped fresh basil

yellow pepper sliced thin


Good to serve at cocktail party


Combine shrimp, onion and capers . In a jar with tight fitting lid,
combine all other ingredients
Shake well and pour over shrimp.

I marinate overnight or a good 24 hours, stirring throughout the day.

Tip: White wine vinegar or Champagne vinegar or fresh squeezed lemon is good as the acid because it does not discolor the shrimp like red wine would. it is not as strong also.
