Kiki's Sweet and Spicy Marinated Shrimp

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Sweet and spicy, these shrimp marinate overnight bathed in red wine vinegar, lemon, sugar, garlic, and jalapeno peppers. They're a favorite appetizer.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Pour vinegar into a pot over high heat. Stir in lemon slices, jalapeno peppers, garlic, onion flakes, and sugar. Bring to a rapid boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and cool to luke warm.
  • Place the shrimp and cilantro into a resealable plastic bag. Pour the luke-warm sauce into the bag, seal tightly; refrigerate overnight, turning the bag over several times.
  • Drain liquid from resealable bag, and place shrimp in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss well.
