Marinated Shrimp Salad


This is another recipe I made in Washington DC with my family. It is my mom’s recipe, and it is perfect for a hot summer day, especially if served with a glass of chilled white wine!


  • Large shrimps (30, about 5 per person to serve 6 people)
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup white or rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 T celery seed
  • Or use 2 cups of a nice champaign vinegar salad dressing and add capers


  • Cook shrimp 3-5 min in boiling water until turn pink. Peel shrimp before or after cooking
  • Mix all ingredients into marinade. Can place in a large zip lock bag. Marinate cooked shrimp for 30 min – 3 hours. (But not overnight)
  • Serve over green salad with tomatoes, onions, and black/green olives. Add salad dressing to desired taste.
