Yield:
4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deviened
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 small onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 jalapeno Chiles, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • Garnishes: mixed baby lettuce leaves, 8 radishes, sliced, 16 green olives, pitted and sliced

Directions

Season the shrimp all over with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Saute the shrimp in two batches, until lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a plastic or glass container. Add the remaining oil and the remaining ingredients except the garnishes to the skillet. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Pour the vinegar mixture over the shrimp. Cover and chill overnight. Serve on baby lettuce leaves, and garnish with the radishes and green olives.
