Shrimp Cocktail Recipe

Place shrimp in a medium bowl; add ⅓ cup lemon juice. Put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Drain the shrimp and discard the lemon juice.

In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, place the water and salt. When it starts to boil add the shrimp and turn off the heat.

Let the shrimp in the water just until they are cooked, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the shrimp to a plastic container and refrigerate.

In a small bowl, combine onion, remaining lemon juice, ketchup, mayonnaise, pepper, hot sauce, and parsley.

Add the shrimp and serve in glass bowls over the lettuce. Serve with crackers and garnish with olive oil and parsley.
